November 2, Sunday evening -- Reading Matthew Polly

Eating sushi in the Castro
Reading American Shaolin, by Matthew Polly. It's a true story about a guy who drops out of Princeton to go practice martial arts in China. She's reading it because she studies martial arts too, and is planning a trip to China to do the same thing. And, also about China, she's reading a trilogy called Romance of the Three Kingdoms, by Luo Guanzhong -- a famous historical novel written in the 14th century. Here's a link to another reader, reading The Three Kingdoms.

Her favorite book -- The House on Mango Street, by Sandra Cisneros.

Do you read about the sports you practice?

I like to read books about bellydancing (not technique, so much as the dancers themselves). Snake Hips was good for this, and one day, I will finally read A Trade Like Any Other.
