35. The Reason Why She Moved To New York City, at KL Sentral

reading while: waiting for a friend to show up for lunch

The Reason Why She Moved To New York City is the English translation for this Japanese biography:

The author is a journalist, and this very sweet reader I spotted (also Japanese) loves biographies and journalist writing.

She reads several books like this, in both Japanese and English all the time as part of her anthropological research. When asked for favourites, she recommended Susan Sontag's writing because she respects Sontag's ideas and opinions.

34. You Can Reach The Top, at KL Sentral

reading while: waiting for lunch

Happy new year everyone! I was stuck in KL Sentral for a few hours yesterday and even though I didn't bring my camera, I thought I'd use my cameraphone and go readKL hunting for 2009. After combing every inch, floor, restaurant and back alley of KL Sentral during peak hour (that's a lot of walking), I still hadn't found anyone who had brought a book out to read.

After what felt like ages, I walked into Secret Recipe and spotted this reader:

She was reading You Can Reach The Top by Zig Zaglar, and was raving about how the book was laid out. She devours motivational books over all genres (although sometimes she reads horoscope books), sometimes up to 3 books a month. They encourage her to think outside the box, and learn to work with children.

She also likes Steven Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.

33. A Game Of Thrones, Bangsar, 28 Nov

reading while: waiting for a friend

The last reader I bumped into for the year. He arrived a little too early so he is reading while waiting. His friend lent him this book, A Game Of Thrones by George R.R Martin. He's enjoying it just fine, and doesn't have a favourite book.

readKL is ready for 2009, are you?

at last! I know we've been on a long hiatus. Well technically, only I have, since I couldn't find my card reader or charger. As for the other contributors, I wonder if they keep quiet when I do too?

I combed KL Sentral today for two hours (I was stranded) and only found two people who brought books out with them to read. I'm hoping the rest of the year will be more promising.
