Yes, We Should Read More!
I remembered watching China's CCTV interview of China's PM Wen Jiabao in which he said "A Nation will not prosper if its citizens do not read". Yes, we should read more for our own sake. There is a whole new world that books provide for us to explore, learn, understand and stimulate us. Immediately after the Financial Crisis of 2008 there were tons of books published by journalists, writers, economists, etc. (mostly American/Western) delving into the How, Why, What Happened & Who-Dun-It? on the Crisis. Our Asian counterparts should emulate the West on this though hitching on the band-wagon of profits notwithstanding. So run down to our National Library with your Identity Card & start the reading habit. You can borrow a maximum of 6 books at a time. Happy Reading!
