We simply love how the owners of Spring Whispers decided on its name. It apparently attempts to describe the slight wind created when one flips a magazine page. The Sanlitun branch of the Spring Whispers Book Club is a sleek and beautiful magazine library, and a great place to step out of Taikoo Li’s maddening crowds. The space features tall glass windows, abundant natural-lit seatings and a minimalist aesthetic that is a contrast to the rampant consumerism outside. Similar to its other store tucked inside Qianmen’s restored hutongs, its Sanlitun space has an eclectic range of contemporary magazines that are free for visitors to flip through at their leisure.
