This is the second week of the Lunar New Year holiday, so there are still more tourists with guidebooks than usual around the city. I spent a day in Macau, the former Portuguese colony known as the Las Vegas of Asia. It seems that just about everyone in Hong Kong decided to go to Macau this week. While I was waiting in the very crowded ferry terminal I saw a girl carrying The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Back in HK I saw two people reading Chinese books, a man with a graphic novel that may or may not have been in English, and a group of women reading the Bible in Tagalog. I also saw another Kindle! It was the newest generation in that great slate gray color. I've now seen four Kindles besides mine after six months in HK.
What are people reading in your town this week?
