Anyone happens to have read a good book on China (written in my target language: English) and would like to recommend?
P.S.: Just to give you an idea, I really had a good time reading the following super awesome books.
Peter Hessler: Strange Stone, Orachle Bones, River Town, Country Driving
Evan Osnos: Age of Ambition
Thank you so very much!!

China Pictorial October 2006
I just found out something interesting online and would like to share it with all of you. The Anthill is a non-profit organization hosting a collection of short stories written by expats residing in China. These stories are essentially anecdotes that some expats have encountered/observed while there. <o:p></o:p>
If you are a native Mandarin speaker who ever wonders what it feels like to be a “foreigner” living in China, you may want to read some of these stories because it puts you in the shoes of “foreigners” and allows you to see ourselves from a more objective point of view. <o:p></o:p>
If you have never been to China and are considering doing that someday, you may also want to read some of these stories to get your feet wet. <o:p></o:p>
Note: (If you happen to have read something good on China, please share it. Thanks!)<o:p></o:p>
