JeanOur first member from Singapore! Welcome to BookTalk. How did you hear about BookTalk? ...from running a search?From what I have heard Singapore has the best educational system in the world. Your nation allocates about 5x as much of the budget to education as the United States. I knew a few girls from Singapore back in college and we talked about this subject quite a bit. The US could learn a lot from Singapore.Are you mainly into fiction or nonfiction? We've got a few book discussions going on right now and we're discussing what books we want to read in 1st quarter. So jump right in and join us whenever and however you like. Chris
