Hi Everyone

Today I’ve been to work. After work I meet Bailey and we bought a delayed birthday present to our sister Chinyere, and we did some shopping as well. I bought two books. Something people might not know is that I love reading and I have a mini library in my room. Sometimes I love reading superficial books like the “Gossip Girl” books, or other times book with deeper meaning or biographies like the biography about “Mao”.
One of the books I bought today was “China Witness, voices from a silent generation” by Xinran. This is what it says on the back of the book: “China Witness is the personal testimony of a generation whose stories have not yet been told”. Xinran is one of my favorite authors I have other books by her. But if you want to enjoy her books, you should be able to reflect on things, and understand that everything is not as it seems and everything has deeper meaning. It really makes you think about your life, and how lucky it is that all your problems aren’t really problems, compare to other people. And how lucky you are if you are born in what I call a “right” country (No offence). The other book I bought is called “The Help” and is by Kathryn Stockett. I have never heard of this author before, but the cover of the book and what it said on the back of the book at sold me it says: “The First time I was ever called ugly, I was thirteen”. After that I was sold. I’m looking forward to read this book. I just hope it doesn’t turn out to be a big disappointment.
Have you read any good books lately?

    I am reading five books at the moment but "the help" seems like a good book. I wouldn't think that you read. You seems a little superficial to be honest. So you had a productive saturday all in all then....

  3. You should read the S.King book if that's what you want! :)

    And to proud to be white, there is a lot of things you don't know about me :)
