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.
