It's on one floor, right at the junction of Machang Dao and Xi Kang Lu, and easy to spot. The stock is fairly similar to the aforementioned bookstore, but with added travel books. Somewhat surprisingly, there is a fairly substantial travel section, mostly on Asian countries, including "Lonely Planet" guides. There wasn't one on China, or Tibet, inevitably. The fiction is more diffuse, not simply the Wordsworth classics but with American "Signet" editions, a higher proportion of modern books and a generally more varied selection. Non-fiction, outside the travel field, remains somewhat elusive, unless of course you are looking for books with a positive take on China.
