0 books in March?

We just got back from a 3 weeks vacation in Hong Kong and Guam. I brought 5 books (in English) with me for the long plane ride (the longest leg was about 14 hours!) and I read NONE of them... was too tired on my way over there, and felt like reading something short on my way back (in between napping) so I read some Chinese magazines and short Chinese books instead... well I supposed I did read 3.5 books in Chinese so far this month, but I won't be doing any reviews on them.

With 5 days left in March, I wonder if I'd end up reading any books in English?

My book club choice for April is American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld, so will read that soon! We will also be choosing books for the 2nd half of the year and 1st half of next year soon. I submitted some suggestions, can't wait to see what we end up choosing!

PS - Oops! I did read at last 1 book in March! I forgot I finished Jin-Ling's Two Left Feet by Helen Chen before I left for vacation in the first week of March. Will need to do a review soon!


  1. I've always dreamed of living in China!! OK... I have always dreamed of living ANYWHERE!!

  2. @Juju - yes 3 weeks... I hardly took any vacation in the last 5 years, plus I hadn't seen my family for 5.5 years, so thought might as well take a long vacation this time - especially with the long flight!

    @Swimmer - definitely a different culture there! I have lived in Hong Kong, Australia and now the US. All has its good and bad but you learn to appreciate the differences! :)

  3. wow you must have had a great vacation...I hope you'll be sharing photos.

  4. @Serena - it went by very quickly! I tend to be slow with my photos (need to edit them etc). Will post some when ready :)
