shop photo: my fav corner in the store

It’s very cold now but the sunshine is beautiful. The bookstore is quiet. Few customers visit us today. So Wei and I work together with our new book publishing project. Our second photobook from A Perfect Book is going to be published the beginning of 2012.

Lullatone’s new cd plays in the store all day around.
Do you hear that?

We are fine!

2011 / 11 / 07

We are not closed.
We are not lazy.
We are not rich.
We are not big.
We are not a dreamy bookstore.
But we are fine, we are whole.
We are in DaLian, China.

See you SOON!

Bananafish Books, together with our tranquil publishing house A Perfect Book and our newly launched Pausebread Press, welcome you to the first independent publications bookstore of China.
