Eslite, Taipei…I get an intoxicating buzz just being in this 8-floors, 24-hour mega bookstore

Wow, this is a book lover’s paradise. An overwhelming, stress-inducing, orgasm inspiring, drool producing, book paradise. If you are in Taipei for a weekend or have lived there for 10 years or more you will always find something that you may have been looking for or not looking for at this place. It has pretty much everything from imported magazines, locally published books, and numerous Japanese books translated into Chinese for the Taiwan market. I get an intoxicating buzz just being in this 8-floor, 24-hour store, surrounded by so many thoughtfully curated books and people who truly appreciate their value.

The idea behind Eslite is that it really isn’t just a bookstore. Don’t miss the cool CD and DVD store downstairs. Easily the most reliable DVD store in the city, this store has plenty of oldies as well as the usual “just released in cinemas” Hollywood blockbusters. The basement snack and drink and food court is no slouch either

A must visit if you have never been. Books can be sexy. I promise. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
