sounds interesting.
It's a bit strange that I've never heard of Qiu Xialong before though I'm in China. Maybe I'm familiar with the Chinese name, or maybe I just read too few fictions

I agree. Fiction or non-fiction (just not business). I just finished Harry Potter and think Rowling has become a very mature story teller. Much better than the administration in Wasington. Just starting Neal Stephenson's Crytonomicon, and reading Shakespeare, A Year in the Life, 1599. What I don't need is to watch my Fidelity accounts shrink daily. This will do nothing for my confidence, nor will it do anything to shore up my investments. I'm in this for the long haul, so hey, bumps in the road mean distraction - so I'm with you, read and learn while the market falls. Individual investors can't do much about the plummets except cry or get creative. I'm on the get creative front - and reading is a great source of inspiration.

A mist all the chaos of the new these days I found a great piece of literature to hide in. A book called "Truck: a Love Story" by Michael Perry. It is actually a non-fiction but he blends in so many amusing insights that have strong fiction overtones it could pass as ether. It's a great book to snag a chuckle with and wrap up the day. I first heard about it during a book review on NPR.
