    Books in Chinese (simplified)?

    Hey! I'm looking to buy (hopefully) an english novel (such as harry potter or The Da Vinci Code) in Chinese. I have studied Chinese for 5 years, and just want to have something that I can carry around, and TRY to read while on the go, hopefully getting better at written Chinese. The only problem is that I study simplified characters, and every bookstore I've been to sells these books in traditional characters. Am I simply out of luck? And if so, do they sell ANY books in simplified characters (not just english originated novels)?

    Thanks in advance.

    "新华書城" (Xin Hua Shu Cheng)
    Address: No. 1 Leighton Rad, Causeway Bay.
    Tel: 3550 5600

    They have three floors, more than 1000sq in total, target at those who read "simplified" Chinese. I don't read "simplified" Chinese so I am not sure if they have the Chinese version of "Harry Potter" / "Da Vinci Code", but it is worth visiting, especially if you want to get books printed in simplified Chinese!
