Who’s Reading What: October 2010
21 October, 2010
I’m supposed to be documenting who’s reading what around me every month, but alas, it keeps slipping my mind and I keep forgetting to ask people and it’s already 3 months since the last one. Gah.
So what have people been reading this month? I’ve asked my boarding school posse who still haven’t gotten tired of me after 22 years:
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee – being read in Chile at the moment
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson – same as above. Her sis and I have been going on and on about this series to her and she’s finally succumbed. Result.
Suspicions of Mr. Whicher by Kate Summerscale – being read by a crime fiction aficionado
The Buddha, Geoff and Me by Edward Canfor-Dumas – being read by the spiritual (and very fashionable) one
From Here to Maternity: One Mother of a Journey by Mel Giedroyc – being read by the mother of a delightful and extremely well-behaved baby girl
I’ve read the first two titles and have the third on my TBR. I remember getting the last title for my sister which she said was hysterical.
I commute to work on the tube and I’m always checking out what others are reading. Sadly, most read the Metro in the morning and the Evening Standard on the way home. However, I did see a lady reading an e-book yesterday and I spied a number of copies of Gary Shteyngart’s Super Sad True Love Story (which I really want to read) dotted along the Northern Line in the past month.
What about you? Are you curious about what people around you are reading?
