      I just look around changle road this afternoon, and find this book store. It has a lot of interesting foreign books and books about shanghai that I hope to read. Finally I got the China: an inside view from the outside, which contains a lot of pictures about the small things of everyday life. I choose to read it because it offers me a look into shanghai, which I am not familiar with, which might slowly but steadily vanish.
