The Bookworm (Shūchóng) Review

Book lovers, hipsters, and aspiring poets take note: This lending library and bookstore offers a spacious second-story reading room with a full café and bar. All are welcome to browse: the magazine and new-books section are a stupendous sight for English-starved travelers. The store frequently hosts poetry readings and lectures, as well as an annual literary festival in March.
