Bookspotting: Week 10

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?


  1. The gentleman sitting next to me on the plane to Los Angeles not only had a Kindle, but he was also reading it in Spanish. Turns out he and his wife were from Costa Rica and returning from a tour of China.

  2. Two of my co-workers have finished a book called The Golden Notebook. Sounds interesting but not quite my cup of tea!
