           is a testament to Mr Tsao's diligence in caring for his books. As soon as you step through the door, you will see the entire wall of books, mainly featuring books about the islands, covering a range of topics from culture and weather to cooking vegetable dishes, while also including more mainstream selections of Taiwanese novels and other books, all of which can be read in the reading area or loaned home to be slowly enjoyed. Testing Apart from book-lending services, the bookstore also organises events, including author dialogues and reading guides. Its tabletop gaming activities use games as a way of sharing life experiences and to impart knowledge about the local area. Another unique project is the “Inter-Island Dialogues” series, using videos and podcasts to feature the youth of Kinmen and the Matsu Islands to share stories from the islands through a dialogue format. Experiences I was able to speak with Mr Tsao during my visit and heard about the struggles as the store went from first generation to second, the determination required in opening a bookstore by the sea, and the boundless expectations for the future. I could feel his sincere love for reading. I hope that this combination of tea, books, and culture will bring to Penghu locals new reading experiences. If you ever find yourself in Penghu, be sure to stop by for a visit!
