The fourth floor of this large bookstore houses foreign books, most of them in English. A good, albeit limited, selection of contemporary authors are available here, interspersed among classics, textbooks, children's books and current magazines. Despite the apparently chaotic arrangement of books, the English-speaking staff are uncannily keen when it comes to locating specific authors. The third floor houses books of and regarding art in English and Chinese. The second floor houses language study books in Chinese. The first floor has CDs, VCDs, English-Chinese dictionaries, and books and tapes to assist Mandarin learners.
