36 Shanxi Nan Lu
Previously known as Shanghai Book Traders Bookstore (and no relation to the Foreign Language Bookstore), this tiny shop is well worth seeking out, its a treasure trove for keen readers with cheap English-language magazines such as National Geographic, the Economist and Time. It also sells a broad range of secondhand books including contemporary novels, travel literature and comics. Prices tend to range from 20-100 RMB.
