Reading ensures a life style without limits. This philosophy lies dear to the heart of a certain group of Pingtung locals who are as passionate about reading as they are about this southern land. As a result, they’ve not only devoted themselves to sowing the seeds of reading and cultivating a widespread enthusiasm for books, but also strive to see that their efforts have a positive impact on the environment. If you’re very much on the same page, a books-on-foot walking tour of the local bookstores is undoubtedly a must.
