Why I am Doing This

Welcome to my new blog.

I have been riding the New York City transit system (usually the subway) almost every day and I always take note of what people are reading. I remember in the early 1990s everyone was reading John Grisham. It was like a cult or something. Of course the alternative to Grisham was doing word searches, so what was I to complain about "The Pelican Brief"?

I missed many gems. There was a woman sitting next to me a few years ago, eating Pringles and reading a book whose title contained several grammatical errors. I did not write it down and I really regret it, because the chances that I will ever come across that book again are slimmer than Lara Flynn Boyle. But I am determined to keep a faithful journal of the books that I see on the subway.
