December 19, 2016, Monday night (in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) -- Reading Ashlee Vance

At the Kuala Lumpur airport
He lives in Kuala Lumpur, and is on his way home to see his family in the UK
He is reading Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future, by Ashlee Vance. Recently he hasn't had much time to read outside of books for work (he's a physicist) and found this pleasure reading at a bookstore in the airport.

When he does read for fun, one of the genres he likes is sports autobiographies. He read Hitting Back: The Autobiography, by Andy Murray, a tennis player from his home country, Scotland, who became number 1 in the world this past November. He also enjoyed reading Four Men in a Boat:  The Inside Story of the Sydney 2000 Coxless Four, about the 2000 Olympics and Great Britain's rowing team, by Tim Foster, Rory Ross.

It feels a little serendipitous posting from Kuala Lumpur, not only because I like the way it sounds, but also because back in 2008 I inspired Uzair Sawal and Dizzy to interview people reading books and start their own reading blog in Kuala Lumpur. I don't see any recent posts their blog, but here's the link if you want to see people outside the airport reading in Kuala Lumpur.  Unfortunately I don't get to leave the airport, I'm just on a layover, but some day maybe I will.
