I am in New York. I am not reading. I am sober enough to have watched someone finish A Girl Named Zippy on the subway and then reach into her book bag for another trade paper. I could not catch the title of the yellow-covered book the young woman who consumed two bags of potato chips was reading, but it was NOT Kate Atkinson's Behind the Scenes at the Museum as I'd hoped.

Further details as warranted.


  1. Lucky you to be in NYC! I guess the books must have been page turners if she managed to eat two bags of chips!

  2. Hey, I'm reading Behind the Scenes right now - quite enjoyable. I love peeking at what other people are reading, although sometimes I get the urge to comment if it's a book I particularly liked, which I always think would be weird for the person reading, so I don't.
