I look for books of translated Korean literature, my wife looks for “collections” (as she calls them) of authors as disparate as Dan Brown and Sydney Sheldon.
And yet here we live, strangers in what might contain aspects of paradiseㅡ but aspects to which we are rarely invited, looking to find our own way… with books.
And this, the Foreigner Bookstore (외국 책 on the sign – they didn’t even waste the money for the “인” or “사점”) is the place to be if your destination is literacy city. It’s also the place for visiting tourists to go to find books in (some) of their languages.
This video, then, introduces the Foreigner Bookstore.
