Books read by my generation

I was looking for the image of Confucius via google and happened to come across these pictures posted by one of my generation. I read many of them. Looking through the pictures, I still remember the scene that one book was in motion in the whole class once it appeared in the room.

The reading for children were so scarece at that time that even class could only subscribe one copy of the Kid's time and one copy of Chinese Adolenscent News.shared by fifty-six kids in one room. In the early 1980s, my parents had to ask their friends in post office to subscribe these journals for the family.

Now journals are so widespread that salesmen and saleswomen (Now they are called as sales representatives) to promote them and entice parents to buy them. What a change.
