This week I spotted someone carrying Edward de Bono's Think! Before It's Too Late in Central station. I saw a Chinese woman reading a Kindle with no cover in my favorite coffee shop. I saw a Western woman reading a paperback on the MTR with a black and white portrait on the front, leading me to believe it was a biography. I spotted four Chinese books and one guidebook this week.
In other news, yesterday I went to see a performance of The Importance of Being Earnest for the HK Arts Festival. It was terrific. I had forgotten how ridiculously clever Oscar Wilde is. After spending three hours laughing through the play, I went home and watched The Notebook. Of course, I cried at least three times. It was a strangely exhausting day.
Have you seen any plays recently? Have you watched or read anything sad and hilarious in quick succession lately? What are the people around you reading?
