It takes forever to open Adobe Acrobat .pdf files. Scrolling through the document is extremely slow too. Likewise, printing. I remember that the Acrobat Reader was once a 4MB programme, now, it is a piece of unwieldy bloatware that ties up a lot of resources.

Sunny Bookshop is finally closing for good. I used to purchase science fiction novels from them in the nineties before the arrival of Borders. The selection then was fairly complete, one could find all the books of a single trilogy for instance.
This incarnation of Sunny Bookshop is at Plaza Singapura. The previous two iterations under the original owner were at Plaza Singapura.
I have also visited San Bookstore, the current owner of Sunny, since the early nineties at Peninsula Plaza and other locales. Sadly, all the San Bookstores are closing as well.
I bought two volumes last night.
