To this end, timezone 8 recently worked with China-based magazines Urban China and +0086 to translate and publish their groundbreaking content in the fields of urban planning and street culture respectively.

"There are several stores in Japan and the East, but I only stayed in Tokyo a couple of times, so I can only recomand the Shinjuku South-Kinokuniya Store (Shinjuku Minami Kinokuniya 新宿南紀伊国屋.

The Bookshop has a wide range of books, unfortunatly I can not really say how the Japanese section is, because I only spend time in the section of fiction books and historical novels. However I really can recomand the English Section. There is a huge Section for Political Science and Art (e.g. Reference Books for University Work)."

K.M. Lawson, Blog "井底之蛙"

"Thanks to a tip shared by a fellow graduate student I met here yesterday, I learnt about another excellent academic bookstore here in Taipei which is, I'm told, a favorite among those "in the know." Its owner, a legendary Ms. Huang (who was out when I visited today) is apparently well-loved among scholars all over East Asia as well as sinologists in the United States. This was confirmed by two elderly Korean philosophy professors I had a chat with, from two separate Korean universities, who said that they had been visiting and ordering books from the place for many years. One of these professors yelled the owner's name affectionately as he disembarked the elevator and seemed very disappointed to see she wasn't around.

樂學書局, or the "Lexis Book Co." as it is known in English has one of the most unusual locations of any bookstore I have had the chance to visit. Whereas the 學生書局 is conveniently located on 和平東路 near the entrance of the Shida night market and
唐山書店 is just out of view in a basement locale near Taiwan National University, this book store is found in what looks like a converted residence on the 10th floor of an apartment complex on 金山南路(Chin-shan S. Road), perhaps 10 minutes walk from Guting station. There are no signs at the street level suggesting that this residential high rise houses a bookstore with one of the greatest collections of academic Chinese language works in Taipei. However, as I passed the security guard at the entrance to the grounds, he stopped me and immediately asked with a knowing smile, "樂學書局?" When I responded in the affirmative he told me to go to the apartment complex to the right and take the elevator to the 10th floor. The whole experience felt like that scene in the movie "The Matrix" where the band of adventurers go to visit the mystical "Oracle" in her hidden home.

Inside the apartment/bookstore every room is filled with books, including the shelves above the kitchen sink. History books can be found in its own room in the back corner. There is a great selection of both pre-modern and modern history but look through all the shelves since their semi-sorted nature can be deceiving. While almost all the books are in Chinese, there was a series of shelves with dictionaries and publications in everything from Manchu to the various languages of Central Asia. Another one of the rooms also has a good collection of the English language publications of SMC Publishing."
