Number of people in my car on the Q train last night at appx.8 pm: 37
Number of them reading: 30
Number of them reading books: 22
I found it immensely comforting and it made me put away my copy of The New York Sun
, and take out my new copy of James Mann’s Rise of the Vulcans so that I could join the 10 other folks reading hard covers.
PS The breakdown on readers (non-book) was as follows: 5 magazine, 3 newspaper
