This is a good website for buying books. The prices are cheaper and they deliver goods very fast, mostly in or two days.

I hope it can help you.

Haven't heard of any wholesale market for books, books are heavily controlled by the government, so it is difficult to find any decent book stores here.  I've seen a couple smaller stores sell fake copies of books in poor translations, but never the real imported books. The only time I ever encountered a wholesale book selling was during the Southland Book Festival about a month ago at the Pazhou Exhibition center. I was up to my eyeballs in a sea of books for miles, I had never seen anything like it. Have some patience, they do it at least once or twice a year in GZ.

 

Buy on Taobao or Amazon, or make a cheap trip on the weekend to Hong Kong, where you can get any book in the world.

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
