In Brief: Myanmar monument

MONUMENT Books, the Kingdom's largest English-language bookstore, has launched a book and toy store in Myanmar, said General Manager William Bagley. The outlet has already opened in Yangon and is scheduled for an official launch next month. The Myanmar government does not allow politically sensitive literature, but Bagley said that Monument's focus on children's books should keep the store in the good graces of the ruling generals. "It's a policy decision to stock only children's books, so we haven't faced any problem with [censorship]," said Bagley.
