Try The Bookworm. It's probably your best choice for finding good foreign literature. The beauty about Bookworm is that you don't even have to buy the books. It works like a library system whereby you just pay an annual membership and start reading from there. They also do some good events from time to time like author talks etc.

If that's not enought choice for you, you can also check out the Foreign Language Bookstore. They have these in all major cities, but from my experience, they're never quite as rewarding as the name promises. This is the kind of place you go to for a dictionary or reference book and maybe if you're into Jane Austen or something.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
