Buying a book once involved flipping through the pages and smelling the aroma of print and paper. With e-books, things have changed. And now with CU Virtual Bookstore, purchasing books has become even more convenient.
CU Virtual Bookstore is, as the name suggests, an extension of Chulalongkorn University Book Centre. The electronic "bookstore" is a 46-inch multi-touch screen installed now at the physical branches of the centre, but will soon become available in public places, such as BTS stations. Right now, over 300,000 titles are available.
Using the large screen, readers can search for the book title they want, and order then pay for it at the same time.
