A $6,500 paperback from a small bookshop in northern China may be the best-selling book in China this year.
A group of young booksellers in Nanjing, capital of the eastern province of Jiangsu, have taken a different tack this year: They have decided to sell their wares for about $1.
The shop’s website offers a selection of books ranging from $1 to $6.
It’s an easy sale for most people in the area, as many have read the book.
But the small book shop is not the only place in the city that is selling inexpensive books.
In Nanjing’s western coastal district, the Chinese city of Nanning is also selling inexpensive, but often underpriced books for a relatively low price.
For many people, this is a sign that the world is getting better, said Nanjing-based writer and editor Ma Jian, who has written for the online publication Global Times.
He is the author of two popular books, One-Two-Two, which was published by the Nanjing Publishing Group and was a best seller in China, and Nanjing Business Insider, which sold over 200,000 copies in China last year.
Ma said the books he sells at Nanjing Bookshop are not cheap but are not that cheap either.
“For some reason, we’re selling cheap.
We are selling books that are more expensive than what we sell for,” he said.
For example, he sells books in the US at $1,000 for hardbacks, and $4,000 on e-books.
He also sells books for less than a third of the price at Nanning Bookshop.
But for Ma, the cheaper books sell better because people tend to think, ‘I don’t care about what price I pay, what price can I get?’ and that makes the books sell for a lot more.
A few of the books Ma sells are also popular in Nanning.
In a local newspaper, he recently told reporters he sells “just a few books” for a “fair price.”
“But people think if I have a few more books, I can make more money,” he added.
Nanning Bookstore owner Yang Zhongsheng says he has sold more than 100,000 books this year for a total of more than $8 million.
In Nanning, there are many different kinds of books, ranging from books about children to books about history.
A few of those books have sold better than others.
A book from the Chinese version of the book, One Hundred Little Fables, sold in Nanng for $3,000 last year, said Yang.
It has a nice cover.
But another book sold for less: It’s called A Tale of a Dog, which is about a dog.
In the Nanning region, the dog is called “dog.”
A Chinese translation of the bestseller One Hundred Things sold for just $1 at Nanming Bookshop last year and a local bookshop has sold it for $2.
The Nanning bookshop sells books that have not been translated, said the owner of the Nanting Bookshop, Yang Zhongsheng.
He said the Nanming bookshop will sell books from the Nanping region to other cities in China.
For some locals, the Nanzing bookshop is not a great place to buy books.
“I think Nanjing bookshop should be called Nanjing City Bookshop,” said the local woman.
“But if I want to read books in Nanbinjing, I have to go to Nanjing city.”
But others in Nanjiang agree that Nanjing has a better bookstore for books.
“I don,t think it’s a good idea to buy cheap books from Nanjing,” said Nanning-based bookseller Wang Jing.
“People can find cheap books online, but books should be translated.”
