The China Post - - LOCAL -

A Tai­wanese book­store, the Es­lite Dun­nan Store in Taipei, has been listed on CNN’s list of the “world’s coolest book­stores.”

In an ar­ti­cle pub­lished Aug. 4 on the CNN web­site, the Es­lite store on Taipei’s Dun­hua South Road was cho­sen as one of the world’s 17 coolest book­stores by the ca­ble news net­work.

“In 1999, the first Es­lite book­store de­lighted the city of Taipei by stay­ing open 24 hours a day,” ac­cord­ing to the ar­ti­cle.

“But the 17,000-square-me­ter store re­ally made its name by stock­ing an im­pres­sive multi-lan­guage ar­ray of books and mag­a­zines,” the ar­ti­cle says.

It went on to men­tion two other Es­lite book­store branches — the Es­lite Xinyi Store, Tai­wan’s largest book­store, and the Es­lite Spec­trum Songyan Store, which i ncludes a book­store, movie theater, per­for­mance hall and re­tail out­lets.
