What are people in the NYC subway system reading?

Zazen reading is especially useful for comprehension

This week’s leading book is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larrson. Did you know the book is a crime novel? Did you know that Mr. Larsson is dead? Did you know that he wrote his novels in the evenings for his own pleasure?

This week’s top five:

1. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

2. The New Yorker (women becoming bishops article)

3. Animal Farm (it’s that time of year in the high schools)

4. Twilight (screenplay for the 1998 Robert Benton film starring Newman/Hackman/Sarandon)

5. Chocolate for Dummies

Blast from the Past! Top reading on the subways, March 1983

1. Space (novel by Michener, prequel to Hawaii)

2. Cliff Notes for Macbeth

3. The Amazing Spider-Man #238 (avec Hobgoblin)

4. Time Magazine Vol.121 No.11 (op-ed on how successful the Reagan presidency is)

5. 1983 Bill James Baseball Abstract

  1. I wanted to say that I love this post, and am eager to see later updates.

    I didn’t know those things about The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

    I’m about to teach Animal Farm myself.
