    Anyone know of a bookstore in Chengdu that has a large selection of imported books in English?

    I like the huge bookstore by Wu Hou Zi street but their selection of English books is about what I have in my apartment.

    Any suggestions besides the Bookworm (A place that I'm a big fan of but I still don't consider it a bookstore)?

    @corygo There's a nice bookstore in IFS on the 5th floor.

    They have a wide variety of Chinese and English books.

    I second Isabella. PageOne on the 5th floor of IFS is great.

    Under Tai Koo Li, next door, is a huge, cavernous bookstore which is a real hit right now (fang suo?).

    I think they have fewer English books, though.

    5th floor of IFS also happens to have a pretty rad bowling alley with tap beers, food and pool.

    It's just a bit pricey - from Taiwan I believe.

    Anyone know the address of IFS?

    Or do they have a website?

    Thanks for the info!
