more books in the Library
Make sure to drop in regularly because The Bookworm’s
buying partner in the States continues to supply new
non-fiction titles. Our fiction section meanwhile is
growing by the day through kind donations from members
and people leaving China. We now have 25,000 titles
across our three locations!
Books for Sale
The Bookworm is building relationships with overseas
publishers to grow our catalogue of new books for sale.
Sinophiles, we have new stocks of our all-time best-selling
books Mr China by Tim Clissold (120RMB) and The Chinese (170RMB) by Jasper Becker. We also have a brand new batch of the much-requested China Shakes the World (195RMB), by James Kynge, as well as a fabulous range of fiction from Chinese authors and from those further afield using China as their subject matter.
Our range of general fiction continues to grow exponentially, and we’re now proud to feature literature from authors as diverse and distinguished as Rushdie, Garcia Marquez, Kafka, Atwood, Murakami, Zadie and Ali Smith, and Orhan Pamuk.
Check out our great selection of travel titles in the bookshop too, where we have guides from some of the biggest names in travel publishing – Lonely Planet, Rough Guide and Time Out. We also have specialist titles from Asia based travel companies such as Luxe City Guides and the wonderful Odyssey Publications. If you’re planning a trip, come down and have a browse today.
