The World in Books: Wuguan Books, Taiwan

This bookshop in Wuguan, Taiwan looks like the most peaceful shopping experience...

 

Wuguan Books looks like one of those museum exhibitions where everyone's voice automatically drops down to whisper. Customers shop in the dark, and the only light available is the few lumens emitted by the individual spotlights placed above each book. I kinda love it... 

 

"Things that we thought might happen like guests tripping, sleeping and stealing have almost never happened," Su said.

 

"Visiting Wuguan, it's to spend time with yourself and find a book that can resonate with you, instead of taking Instagram beauty shots."
