This was a nearly impossible bookspotting week. I saw books all over the place, but I didn't manage to catch a single title. There was a young woman in my favorite pizza place, Paisano's, who sat facing a mirror, but I couldn't read the title of her paperback in the reflection. A man walked the length of my MTR train with an English book held close to his side. I passed a young boy on the escalator in the Wanchai Computer Centre who was reading a hefty English paperback. When I turned around as the steps carried him down I could almost read a few words on the page, but not the title. I spent a few hours reading my Kindle in Starbucks on Sunday afternoon, and even there most people were reading the newspaper. I did see three Chinese books throughout the week. I hope you had better luck than me.
What are people reading in your town this week?
