    The Stolen Bicycle mobi Ø Kindle EditionRead Ê Wu Ming-Yi The Stolen Bicycle2 starsI think this was a story about many stolen bicycles bicycle history in Taiwan and lots of little stories that had nothing whatsoever to do with bicycles My ebook expired before I finished but I am certainly in no hurry to borrow this book again I offer the 2 stars for the snippets of information about cruelty to butterflies which were made to suffer by having their wings cut off in the name of art while their bodies were tossed
