Please add any updated information to the specific threads listed below so as to help us provide a helpful resource to visitors:

1. Where can I find English books in Taiwan?
2. Where can I sell/buy second-hand books?
3. Where can I find DVDs in Taipei/Taiwan?
4. How can I order books or movies online?
5. Where are the movie theaters in Taipei/Taiwan?
6. Where can I find fellow musicians?

Where can I find a schedule of English TV in Taiwan? is another popular question. There is no one website with all that is on TV. Buy a copy of either the Taipei Times or China Post for a daily schedule. The China Post has a 3 day schedule for selected channels online (Disney, ESPN, Hollywood, Star Movies, National Geographic, etc.): http://www.chinapost.com.tw/tvlistings/ Otherwise, you simply need to find individual channels' websites. For example, the HBO and cinemax channels are here: http://www.hboasia.com/index.php/signature If you don't believe me, post here.
