Love, Don't Love: Reading on the Subway

Love: Being so engrossed in my book that I almost miss my subway stop

Don't love: Being so engrossed in my book that I ACTUALLY miss my subway stop

Both of these happened today thanks to The Time Traveler's Wife.

Song of the Day
The characters in my book went to a Violent Femmes concert so I've had Blister in the Sun stuck in my head. Enjoy!


  1. Yeah book club. Starting my copy soon.

  2. Love the song, and the post! So, I'm assuming it's a good book - should I check it out?

  3. Oh my gosh - I totally almost did the same thing today while reading that very same book!! Except one missed stop and I would have ended up in Queens :) va bene

  4. LOVED The Time Travelers Wife! Really great book.

    Your post just made me laugh (one of those that's funny cause I'm embarrassed laughs) because it reminded me of my own subway adventure last week, where I started reading while waiting on the platform and was sooo into my book that I didn't notice I was getting on the wrong train. Not only did I not notice I was on the wrong train, but I didn't catch on until I looked up and realized I had take the G train to Queens... no where near Manhattan. Needless to say, I was 45 minutes late for work. Damn you, Jodi Picoult!
