Zhongshuge Book Store

This magical wonderland is Zhongshuge Book Store in Chengdu, China. We have always been great book-lovers (and aspire to have our own libraries with collections of special books to share), but in recent times bookstores have struggled under the fierce competition from online stores and digital publishing. Zhongshuge Book Store is trying to bring back the magic of books. Massive mushrooms, shelving in the shape of pandas and bamboo forests, and the overall feel of a jungle create an impressive backdrop for an expression of the magic of books and of their power to change our lives. Would you like to visit a bookstore like this?⠀
