Run out of reading material?

3.0 Stars

Too many long nights on those cross-country sleeper trains might end up depleting the leisure reading stash you packed in your backpack a lot faster than previously anticipated. Come here to stock up on new novels, nonfiction, and reference material in your native language. One oddity: despite the plethora of books about old Beijing, there was not a single guidebook covering China as a whole on any of the many shelves. I wonder whether those just sell out very quickly or if their contents are considered too sensitive to be sold in stores?
