Chinese to French translations [Non-PRO]
Chinese term or phrase: xiao3ren2shu1
Does it mean "reading material on bad subjects" (where xiao3 ren2 refers to "irrespectable people", or it rather means "book for youngsters" where the same element refers to "small people"?

Thanks in advance!

Looking at references on the web I'd say it's the latter - "books for youngsters".
