This week I went to Kowloon Tong to photograph the latest walking tour. On the MTR escalator I saw a young girl reading The Princess Diaries. I saw a woman on the bus reading Three Sisters by Bi Feiyu. I saw a man on the MTR carrying Andrew Ross Sorkin's Too Big to Fail. This week I also attended a poetry reading where Singaporean poet Dr. Eddie Tay read aloud from his own collection. My birthday was this weekend, and when I arrived at my birthday dinner one of my friends was reading a book by Bear Grylls while waiting for everyone else to show up. I spotted four Hong Kong guidebooks within about 7 minutes on a busy, touristy Saturday. I saw five Chinese books this week, plus two graphic novels.
What are people reading in your town this week?
