Bookspotting: Author Website Week

My new author photo by the lovely and talented Joanna Suen
This week I spotted yet another Hunger Games reader on the MTR. She may have actually been reading Catching Fire, the second book in the series, but it was hard to tell. A man on the train was intently studying Love and Respect: The Love She Most Desires, The Respect He Desperately Needs by Emerson Eggerichs. I spotted a teenager carrying a Nora Roberts book through Central and another woman reading an English paperback with a blue cover. I counted four Chinese books and one guidebook.

This week I also had the opportunity to meet Susan Blumberg-Kason, one of the most faithful readers of this blog. Susan is an American writer who lived in Hong Kong for much of the 1990s. She returned to the city for her first visit in years and I got to have lunch with her! She is blogging about her return to HK at her terrific site: SusanBKason.com.

In other news, I would like to announce the launch of my new writer's website: ShannonYoungWriter.com. This blog will continue to be about books and Hong Kong, but if you are interested in my other writing, you can check out the site and sign up for my email list. I have another exciting announcement coming up soon, so stay tuned!

Have you spotted any books this week?

  1. Thank you so much for the mention!! It was wonderful meeting you last weekend! Congratulations on your new website. I love how it fits so well with your Kindle blog. After being back in Hong Kong, I can now see how difficult it can be to book spot there. It seemed like everyone on the MTR was on an iPhone, Facebooking or texting. I did see someone with a guidebook on the MTR, but am not sure which language it was in. Hong Kong was spelled Hongkong. Thanks again so much for the mention. I can't wait to hear your exciting announcement!
