And it just keeps getting better....

I was very thrilled, as I said in my previous post, to find a seller of secondhand English books. I was talking to a friend about this find, and she mentioned that there is another shop that sells cheap secondhand English books, this one in Puxi. (And I have a direct bus from home too!!)

I popped in yesterday afternoon, and found a fairly good selection of English books. Interestingly, the shop carries secondhand books in a great variety of languages. That was quite impressive to see. I picked up about 10 titles for under 150RMB. (And it would have been a fair bit cheaper if I had left out the textbook, which was the costliest of the lot.)

The shop has been around for a long time, though there was apparently one stretch of time in which it was closed down. (That's why no one had mentioned it to me before — they thought it was closed permanently.) It is located at 36 Shanxi Lu, just near Fuzhou Lu. If you are much of a bibliophile, plan to while away a good bit of time there.
