đối sách/ 43 Phan Bội Châu

i keep running into interesting bookstores in Vietnam.
Last time around was Boa Bookstore in Saigon.
This time, it was đối sách in Hội An.bookshop0
This bookstore looked more like a private collection
that has been made open to the public.
Of course it’s a great place
where book lovers can read, relax, buy, exchange and sell books.
There are apparently 5000 books in this shop
and is run by a retired teacher who also looks out for poor students. bookshop5hoian18bookshop3bookshop4hoian19

People have already visited, frequented and critiqued this cafe in g-town and I thought I should do my share of impressions as well.
I did not visit the first week nor the first month since its opening, but eventually made way to this place on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
It is a charming space with books and good food I suppose.
Although there are some who don’t seem to like the food there.
But that’s Gangtok -a new joint opens up, people flock to that place and nobody likes the food.
As for me, I eat what I get. Am not too fussy about food and I think this place has the best beef burger in town in recent days…
(although the last time I was there, they said no beef burgers today)
Hopefully they are not taking the present government’s beef ban too seriously.

is how your check comes in
Shakespeare’s Sonnets…
