Bookspotting and Rainbows


This week I spotted a girl on the MTR reading The Princess Diaries. Later, I saw a woman on the train with an iPad (a common sight), but rather than playing games or checking email, she was actually reading a book (just starting chapter 5). Two women sitting next to me in a coffee shop last night were discussing 50 Shades of Gray, and one of them seemed to have a sample on her iPad. On my way home, I passed a man at a bus stop reading a book whose title I couldn't see. I also spotted two Chinese books this week. What are people reading in your town?

In other news, I was lucky enough to spot this rainbow late yesterday afternoon. A typhoon just passed us and left it right outside my window.

    Last week was "Bookspotting at the Office" for me: I just started a great new job! =) The friend already working there who told me about the opening has a Spanish-English dictionary on her desk at all times, because she is planning a trip to Spain for next year and wants to learn the language. (She is also currently reading The Greatness Guide, a self-help book.) Another new friend I made is reading Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. While strolling about my area, I noticed someone had an L. Ron Hubbard novel on his desk, but I can't remember the title. It's so much more fun trying to spot books when a lot of people are reading, aye? =)
