Social Sunday

Sundays used to be for lounging with the papers, now they are just as likely for lounging with iPads. So if you're lazily clicking around looking for something to read, here are a few suggestions, focussing on what's going on lit-wise in Asia.

Twitter and blog spots.
Each Sunday I suggest a Twitter account you may like to follow, and a blog I find interesting – either about books, or about Asia, or both.

Twitter spot
Literary Hub, @lithub,  using the slogan “read to live”. It provides a fantastic round-up of interesting articles.  Associated website:

Blog spot

Global Voices: “We are a border-less, largely volunteer community of more than 1400 writers, analysts, online media experts, and translators.” Really interesting site. Pages available in several languages, including Chinese.  Related twitter account: @globalvoices.
