    Librairie Avant-Garde

    Housed in a disused parking lot under Wutaishan Stadium, this astonishingly vast indie bookshop has very few foreign-language books, but the left-field ambience and comfortable seating make it a must for bibliophiles. With miles of books and a cavernous concrete floor, it's a Nanjing cultural landmark, loved by students and literati for its sizeable collection of social science and humanities books.
