WHAT ARE YOU READING?
Duangruethai Asanachatang is a fixture in the Thai independent book-selling scene - a community of small, low-profile people who're rolling more on passion than on budget. Duangruethai runs the small publishing house Rawang Bantad, or Between the Lines, but she's better known as the owner of a bookshop called Candide, after Voltaire's novel.
Candide used to be on Tanao Road, flanked by shophouses in the old quarter. But after the lease expired, the shop is in the process of being moved to a new location, in the Jacm Factory project, by the river on Charoen Krung Road. It's due to open in a few months.
