In the 2008 trip to China I read River Town: Two Years on the Yangtze. It's about an American teaching in China and about his struggles with the language. Great read.
This trip I'm reading Wild Swans : Three Daughters of China. It's about three generations of Chinese woman and how they dealt with their challenges. Some of the book might be offensive to some so I decided to cover it in some brown paper. The added benefit of doing this is that I could record interesting quotes and references in the book right on the cover.
But why stop there?
I decided to put all my travel connections on the book so that I wouldn't have to pull out additional papers to figure out what gate to go to next. Since I'm often reading on the stopovers, I have the next gate right in my clammy hand.
I think I'll be doing more of this. Love this idea.
