What the Book?

A friend of mine met up with me in Seoul and wanted to check out a bookstore. He suggested What the book? in Itaewon. It’s up on the 2nd floor. The entire store sells English books, children’s books, comics, language study books, adult coloring books and used books. It was terrible. I was hoping after spending all of my winter break with my nook glued to my hand to read that I could withstand physical books, especially since I can’t take them all home. But that new and old book smell was just too hard to withstand. I ended up buying several books with a whisper promise to come back soon for more of the books when I had more money on me.

I’ve been back three times at least, since. I took Nathalie with me during one trip and she ended up leaving with her arms full of teaching supplies. Card games for learning phonics and the words, banners for her boards, and inspirational posters. I eyed the Sandman comics trying to decide whether it would be worth it when I can’t remember which ones exactly I already own. There’s a ton of resources at the bookstore and with little spots to sit it just reminds me of all the indie bookstores in Chicago and makes me feel at home.

You can also buy books online through their website. Located at 176-2 Itaewon 1(il)-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul keep in mind you need to look up since it’s on the second floor.
