I’m finally getting around to posting a few pics from Korea.
So here’s the 1st one — Kyobo Books. I went to the main one in the basement of the Kyobo Building. This particular bookstore has over 2.3 million books.
Kyobo building — it’s a big building, though the one that’s even bigger (the bluish one) is owned by Dong-Ah News (newspaper company).
Kyobo ereader display —
Closeup of Kyobo ereaders —
Kyobo v. Kindle —
Kyobo keyboard — its keys are so small, I don’t know if I can really use it
Kyobo ereader screen — it’s not bad, but I didn’t find the display good enough for Korean text (I do read Korean pretty well)
Kyobo book displays — BTW, there are lots of this kind of displays to showcase select titles.
Kyobo display of JKR’s Harry Potter series —
Kyobo book slip to help you find any title you want — it tells you exactly how many copies are in the store, plus the exact location in the store plus a small map so you can find it easily (sorry it’s wrinkly b/c it got crushed in my bag)
Kyobo has one of the most amazing inventory tracking system. I bought two books entitled The Woman Who Made a King.
I’ll post more photos of downtown Seoul later. :)
