Yoshi has been searching high and low for English language learning books in Hong Kong so we were absolutely excited to learn of Page One (the massive English language bookstore that closed down abruptly end of last year) reopening their warehouse location for a massive CNY sale with 50% + off books and 60% + off gift items! We made our way over to the warehouse, located in an industrial area of town, hopped on a freight lift, and found ourselves surrounded by mountains of books. A word of advise, the books are all piled around the warehouse in no particular order or arrangement so you pretty much have to go in with a “treasure hunt” in mind. If you pay a visit looking for a specific title or genre it’ll end up being quite the disappointing experience (spoken from personal experience, haha).
Not too sure if it’s because they haven’t unpacked all the boxes yet or if everyone else bought up all the other genres during the pre-CNY sales but there were loads and loads of cooking and design books lying around and not too much of anything else! I did spot quite a bit of travel guides, novels, and a number of those “Dummy” series but couldn’t really find anything else. If you’re looking to expand your library, it’s a really good deal for English books that’s for sure!
