Bookspotting: Week 7

I spent much of the week attending HK International Literary Festival events, so I saw plenty of books floating around. Most of these were for sale at the events or in the hands of people seeking autographs. I saw bookmarked copies of FACTORY GIRLS and RIVER TOWN, IN BEAUTIFUL DISGUISES and UGLY, and the many works of Amitav Ghosh.

During my normal commute I saw a woman reading EAT PRAY LOVE and a man reading a book with some sort of 90-day plan advertised on the cover. I counted four Chinese books on the MTR. On Sunday afternoon I sat in Starbucks reading my Kindle next to a girl reading the Bible. I decided to take the tram home instead of the MTR because it was a beautiful day and saw a woman on the upper deck reading DIGITAL FORTRESS by Dan Brown.  

What are people reading in your town this week?


  1. Since we met at the "Expat Book Bloggers" a few weeks ago I have been following. I have been enjoying it. It makes me ready to travel again! Take Care.


  2. Thanks for reading Mandy. I've been reading your blog too and it always makes me hungry!
