Get back to basics and read!

Steve Day: It goes back to creating a reading-friendly environment. Here, the atmosphere is much more lively, which allows everyone to find their own corner to hide away and dive into a book. We have fresh flowers and a violinist playing in the background in the afternoons and a spacious reading area. We do not sell books, so there is no pressure to make a purchase. The entrance fee is NT100 and you are welcomed to stay here for as long as you like and with unlimited access to tea, coffee and other drinks.

Buying the right books that have appeal is more of a concern for me. For readers to pick up a book after the bookshelf, the topic needs to pique their curiosity to begin with, so there should also be plenty of images inside to make it easy to read. Therefore, our books fall under the categories such as aesthetics, food and dining, lifestyle, travel and children's books.

There is also the issue of establishing trust between the customers and us. We have no policies of getting your hand re-stamped for re-entry, nor do we have surveillance cameras. If we had these rules, it would be too complicated and ruin the satisfaction of savoring books. ■
