I think the idea of book crossing is very cool. It is a better way to share books and clean book shelf. English books are usually very expensive here and I always read books one time, so it is really exciting to find out a book crossing stronghold in Shanghai. Full details below:
Figaro Coffee Company on Xingye Lu plays host to hundreds of travelling books in Shanghai. Our shelves (by the entrance and on the second floor) are open daily from 8am until 10pm Mondays-Thursdays and up until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. Feel free to drop by anytime to drop off books, pick up books to give them temporary shelter or to simply read your newest find with a steaming cup of coffee.
We also have monthly meet-ups for Shanghai Bookcrossers every 3rd Saturday of the month at 2pm.
Today I got two John Iriving’s books from a nice French guy. Life is full of unexpected things.
