What a Find!

I came across something here in Shanghai that makes me really happy — a bookstore for second-hand English books!! I think I am in heaven!

I went to the new shop the other day, only to find they had not yet finished moving in. They expect to be done by the end of this week — and of course, I'll make another visit then.

There were a good number of books there, even though they were still in the process of moving. They let me browse about, digging through the boxes and stacks of books lining the floors. I found about 10 volumes that I bought and brought home, all for less than 200RMB. Not a terrible price, even if it is not quite like what I could get in my hometown in the US at the library book sale. Still, it is the best price your going to find in Shanghai on English books at a shop that has such a wide selection.

There are lots of kids' books, as well as books for adults. If you stop by the shop, you'll probably want to look around the shopping center too, and maybe have a nice meal there before heading home. There are plenty of options, including both Western and Chinese fare.
