很想告訴您

我愛讀書,但是卻不喜歡推薦書。對我而言,選擇讀哪一本書是要根據個人喜好,而除了自己,還會有誰更了解自己呢? 至少,我是這麼覺得的。 曾經,我逛書局必定要做的一件事情就是到中文部門找找是否有尤今著的游記。我愛讀游記,特別是些個人旅遊經驗的游記。 過後,似乎越來越難找到一本新的尤今游記了,而其他作家寫的,我卻不喜歡。不喜歡的理由很簡單:書的目標群都是那些正在籌備自己行程的讀者而不是我這類想在沙發上旅行的讀者。 這類書的方向大多都是在說到哪裡哪裡看什麼、吃什麼、入門票多少、景點的開放時間等等,而不是作者本身的經歷和走過這段路的精采回顧。 剛過去的星期六,與朋友約好的時間還早,就到纪伊国屋书店晃一晃,卻意外地發現了兩本由同一位作著的書。 太好了!一定要與大家分享! 都是來自馬來西亞黃愛琳的作品: 《再窮也要去旅行》 《再苦也要去旅行》 真的很值得讀的書!
