I don’t read much but when I do, I enjoy it. I want to complete reading “A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers” by Xiao Lu Guo.
I started reading it in China before I returned, but I decided to leave all my books there so my friend could post them all to me later. So all my books are back and I can start reading all of them one by one.
So yeah, this month I will be reading this book. I have scanned its back cover so you can read the summary:
“Twenty-three-year-old Zhuang (or Z as she calls herself — Westerners cannot pronounce her name) arrives in London to spend a year learning English. Struggling to find her way in the city, and through the puzzles of tense, verb and adverb; she falls for an older Englishman and begins to realise that the landscape of love is an even trickier terrain…”
If I can finish that in time for another book, I really want to read “Eat Pray Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert.
That, and I’ve got some magazines too…Singapore’s first issue of Cosmopolitan:
…and New’s September edition:
