From the outside (like, outside the actual store) it looks like any other bookstore, with a few bookshelves displayed on every side, including beside the entrance door. Each shelf has it's own assortment of books. Through their door you step... outside. The patio is practically a labirynth of bookshelves and books, each section properly labeled. In the middle of the yard is a sitting set, if you ever want to cool down with your found titles under an umbrella. Not a fan of al fresco book hunting? The bookstore has an indoor area that literally houses more books. Because it's an actual house. Books are placed and catergorized according to the room of the house (Looking for cookbook? Kitchen!). Adding to its charming quality, the book store also heavily relies on the honesty of its patrons. Should you spot a book you'd like to take home at the end of the day, payment is done by putting the rightful amount into the store's money slot.

Another hangout spot for bibliophiles out there! Tucked away in the neighborhood of Sheung Wan, this two-storey bookshop offers local and Taiwanese literary selection and a bit of English pieces. Definitely a hangout spot to get away from, Mount Zero hosts book clubs and fairs, get a chance to meet your favorite authors, plus a discussion of your book picks! This bookshop also has a selection of handcrafted stationery and homewares. They are open from 11 am to 6 pm, Monday to Saturday. What makes it more engaging is their occasional free books selection at the entrance!
