A beautiful bookstore indeed! The opportunity to volunteer for a full year or two seems like it would limit the number of volunteers dramatically and is probably feasible only for young adults or the retired but for anyone who can afford the lapse in income, you'd work in a luxury environment and see the world to boot. It doesn't name the German organization behind this venture but sounds like they're providing a wonderful service.

I wonder what language the books are printed in ?

Good question! I can't read the book covers well enough to tell but the wall banner is in English. Plus the ship's name is English.

Hong Kong, Taiwan, Cambodia and Thailand are next on the list.

Can't be English or German can it ?

I think this is a great concept!

Yes I am sure the language makes a difference but for some it could be just looking at pictures.

I'm just glad to see Logos Hope keeping books alive.

Great post Tabby!
