Bookspotting: Week 22
This week I went to the immigration building to renew my work visa. While I was standing in line, I spotted two Kindles, one in a red cover and one in an orange cover with a light attached. I saw a man reading a book that I think was called Father Frank in a coffee shop nearby. I've been showing some visiting friends around Hong Kong this week, and one evening we took the iconic Peak Tram to see the city lights. As we were getting off I saw a girl carrying A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. We also went to neighboring Macau, pictured above, which is a former Portuguese colony turned gambling destination. I saw quite a few Lonely Planet guidebooks along the way. I spotted four Chinese books on the MTR during my regular commute this week.
Where do you usually spot readers? What are people reading around you this week?
