Where To Buy Books in Taipei
These are the places I like to buy new, and used books in Taipei.
Mollie Used Books 茉莉二手書店
http://www.mollie.com.tw Gongguan store 中正區羅斯福路四段40巷2號 Shida store 大安區和平東路一段222號
- Smaller selection of English books, but higher quality titles
- Books generally 'newer' and in better condition than books at WHOSE Books
- 15% off sticker price for members
- Very nice price stickers that peel-off without leaving residue!
