I am wondering if anyone knows other bookstores here in Metro Manila besides the following:
- National Bookstore
- Power Books
- A Different Bookstore
Are there any specialty bookstores that cater to, say, old Chinese books? It doesn't matter if its second-hand or not, a book is a book.
I've been searching in vain for the following:
- The Glass Bead Game (Magister Ludi) by Hermanne Hesse
- Steppenwolfe by Hermanne Hesse
- A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers
- Lucky Wander Boy by D.B. Weiss
and others, mostly old ones. I've been to the bookstores I know and I can't find any of these (National had Hesse, but only Siddharta).
I am also looking for comprehensive books on Japanese and Korean (Hangul) language. I am talking about books that outline the construction and writing of the language as well as grammar and pronounciation. Most of the language books I find are for tourists, containing simple phrases and words that will get you by. Any bookstore(s) that actually have these?
I would appreciate any help.
