Bookspotting: San Francisco

This week, I wrapped up the end of the school year in Hong Kong and headed off to America! Before I left HK, I spotted two people reading Kindles on opposite sides of the same MTR car. I spotted an additional Kindle in Hong Kong International Airport. The woman next to me on the plane was reading The Sunday Philosophy Club by Alexander McCall Smith on an iPad. A gentleman nearby had what looked like a thriller. I didn't notice any other books because I slept for ten of the twelve hours we were in the air!

I spent a few days in San Francisco with one of my best friends from college. It seemed like there were a lot of readers around town, but I didn't get a chance to write down many titles. We spent a little time in this lovely bookshop in the Ferry Building. When I made it to SFO, I visited another busy bookstore and spotted a woman reading a book by Anne Tyler and two more e-readers.

Last night I arrived at my grandparents' farm in beautiful Bandon, Oregon. The rest of my family is on the way from Arizona, and we'll be spending a glorious two weeks here.

San Francisco

Can't believe it has been three years since we graduated from Colgate.

  1. Great post!! I went to that bookstore in the Ferry Building a couple years ago. I love San Francisco bookstores! It's so great you slept for most of the flight.

    Today at the community pool, I saw a woman reading "Lulu in Marrakech" and someone reading Anna Karenina.

    Have a wonderful time with your family in Oregon and enjoy the Olympics!!!

  2. Awesome post! I love California- especially San Francisco. I really enjoyed your pictures. :)
