Spotted: A Columbia student (I’m guessing, since I was up at 116th Street on the 1) reading The Art of War on his iPhone. I don’t know, but for some reason this made me laugh. What would Sun Tzu say?
Caught another young guy with an impressive striped scarf reading an old, beat-up copy of The Catcher in the Rye. Maybe he was inspired to reread it after Salinger’s death?
Also saw a middle-aged woman reading a romance novel, but I couldn’t quite make out the title. Next time!
Did YOU catch anyone reading anything good on public transportation today? Let me know in the comments!
