Discussions about how to find those things that are not immediately obvious
1) Please search before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.
2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one.
3) Please post separately for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.
Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator (right now, that's me, Dragonbones) asking for help. Happy posting!

I don't know a bookstore, but if you just want to read every one for free online, here they are.

Entirely off-topic, but I have a "Calvin and Hobbes Anthology" anecdote.
I once bought the entire Calvin and Hobbes catalogue from a bookstore because I quite enjoyed the writing and because I was relatively affluent. It was six or seven books. I don't recall. This was 1996. There may be more, now.
There was this singer in a punk band that I realy fancied, and when she became pregnant and went to hospital to have the sprog, I sent my Calvin and Hobbes collection with her boyfriend as a gift.
He wasn't the father.
Later I found out that he had said that the books were from him.
She named her son "Calvin".

Thanks, Zender. But I need the actual paper books. Bedtime stories don't work for me on an ipad.
And Jimi, if she had been reaally punk, she'd have torn the foetus out of herself and eaten it. On stage. I thought about doing that exact same thing. Damn gender-specific uteruses! Instead, I had to take it down a notch and just dropped my leather trousers and wiggled my bare bum a bit. Not quite the same thing.
Someone dumped a bunch at a local second hand bookstore and that is how I got mine. I haven't seen them in the local bookstores, not even in Chinese, but I think the usual suspects -no Page One anymore- but rather Kinokuniya -which has a great comic selection in its Breeze Center store- and even Eslite -in Dunhua or Taipei City Hall stores- might have them. Good luck.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else
Page One definitely did, I bought one there. Too bad about them closing.
At least one collection in stock here:
Same for politics.
Including the shoes.
The facts expressed here belong to everybody. The opinions are mine.
I don’t post political comments or articles to convince those who disagree with me,
I post them so that those who might agree with such positions will know they are not alone.
Some things are opinions and can be argued - some things are facts and cannot.
