Books in Motion #4

A book in motion for every leg of last night’s journey to the meeting at Literature for Life. The almost-not-awkward, soon-to-be-handsome young man riding east on the Bloor-Danforth line. He’s reading David Adams Richards’ Mercy Among the Children. The young woman in fabulous boots getting off the southbound train at Yonge Station carrying The Bell Jar. And then the man beside me reading The New Yorker eastbound on the Dundas streetcar. Which isn’t a book in motion, I realize, but the streetcar was crowded and everyone was being terribly private about whatever novels they were reading.

    Another mag-in-motion: This afternoon I was reading UofT magazine on the subway and so was the woman beside me. I couldn’t resist pointing it out, and though she seemed a bit perplexed (how would I know that if I weren’t looking over her shoulder in the first place) we had a nice chat about the school. Print brings us together!!

      I read it over breakfast, if that brings us any closer together…

    It’s sitting on my coffee table.
