When I was living in the mainland, I used to read all the latest “China” books from most every genre. Then about two years before I bailed out, I started losing interest (and track) because they started coming out too frequently and pretty much were mostly vacuous.

St John’s Cathedral is always happy to receive used books for their annual fair.
HK On Air ?
