Taiwan's Eslite Opening Four More Bookstores in 2018

Eslite Spectrum Corp., which operates 44 bookstores in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China, plans to open four more stores next year, the Taipei Times reported. The new stores will be in Taiwan.

Eslite Spectrum v-p Lin Wan-ju said an Eslite survey has found that nearly 60% of local readers still visit physical bookstores every month. "There is still room for the company [to open more bookstores in the nation]," she said.

Eslite Spectrum also runs commercial centers, restaurants and hotels. Some of its newer properties have striking designs, including a hotel with books in rooms and the lobby; a bookstore on the 52nd and 53rd floors of the Shanghai Tower; and an "underground book street."
