 An online website where one can purchase books, handbooks, and other related items from the Mao years. Many of the sellers or shops will respond to email or, if you are in China and give them your mobile number, will call you. Some of them have related items they are also keen to tell you about in the off-chance you want to buy more. Items offered range in price from a few //kuai// to thousands. However, items can only be mailed within mainland China and purchased through a Chinese bank account. If you're not in China, this means that you need someone else to ship the items to, and possibly also to pay for your items. If you're in China or will be, set up an exclusively online bank account and regularly deposit money into it, then pay for everything through that account. One can also take money to a local bank branch and transfer directly into the seller's account, but this can be cumbersome given the often horrendous waiting times to see a teller. **See also** [[http://www.thechinabeat.org/?p=3189 | On the Joys of Online Book Shopping]] by Maggie Greene (The China Beat, February 2011), which provides a detailed description on how to use the site. An online website where one can purchase books, handbooks, and other related items from the Mao years.
