the benefits of bilingual

it's true that there are lots advantages being a bilingual as I found out today a different advantage:
was looking for the book Persepolis 1 and 2, there were none to be found at the vpl branch i was at, except the Chinese version , so sure enuf no one's taken them out! just my luck . Just think that if i can't read in Chinese, I would prob. have to wait for weeks for the English version.
usually I would not read translated version but since it's a graphic book, it was an easy decision.

well, just saying....something for the younger kiddies to know.. that would work only if the kiddies like books and stories that is.
