Social media and books...

This article, mostly on banned books and politics in china - "The politics of a martial arts book fair in Hong Kong" - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-36882918


...ends with a section about the biography of a cat...

And, aside from martial arts, perhaps the standout star of the fair was "Brother Cream" - Hong Kong's most famous cat.

"Brother Cream", who used to be based at a local convenience store, went missing in 2012. He made headlines after he was found safely 26 days later - and became a social media celebrity.

Now he has over 43,800 followers on Instagram and his own PR manager - so perhaps it's not surprising that one of the most popular books on sale was his biography.

Hundreds of fans lined up to take photos with him - because it was his first appearance after retiring from being a "shop manager" at his local convenience store this year.
