A bookshop keeper couple from the second-hand bookshop quarter in Busan
We were already getting worried because the 40 kilos of books we sent before leaving Korea surface mail already on January 4 had not arrived. Today the two parcels came - all the way to my office, which is very rare indeed considering the level and price of services in this country. It pays to have such parcels delivered to the office address instead of home; my experience is that customs officials let parcels to my university address through, while things addressed to home need to be checked.

I don't think I've ever been on such an indiscriminate book shopping spree like when I was there, and that has shown in my card bills. I asked for tips about books worth buying from here and there, and didn't think much. In Seoul, we stayed in a yeogwan only one block away from Kyobo bookstore.

Now, I should only find somewhere the time to read all that.
