Book collector opens chapter on cultural life

FU Tianbin, 47, has been dealing with books for nearly 30 years. He used to work in a bookstore in Shiyan, central China’s Hubei Province, where he became an old book fanatic.

After Fu settled down in Chengdu, southwest China’s Sichuan Province, he set up his own bookstore and collected old books through various ways, which attracted many buyers. Over the past 20 years, Fu circulated more than 2 million old books.

In October 2018, a local sub-district office established a public reading room, inviting Fu to manage and operate it. He then moved 120,000 of his books into the reading room and frequently held book exhibitions, reading workshops, academic salons and other activities, which greatly enriched the cultural life of the locals.
