What are you reading?

Last night on the train I noticed a young woman reading Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.  I usually will look at what books people are reading on the train to get ideas for what I should add to my list.  I was surprised to see someone else reading Pride and Prejudice.  Over the past two years I have seen people reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies on the train but not the original work.  Now for the fans of the Zombie version I am not insulting this work.  In fact I have read it and I enjoyed it immensely.  At first I wasn’t sure of it since I can sometimes be too much of a purist.  However, it was quite amusing picturing Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy fighting off the Zombie invasion of England.

But I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen someone read the original work.  Lately many of my fellow t riders have been reading the Stieg Larsson trilogy about The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  Once again I am not insulting these works either since I have read the first two installments of the trilogy.   This reminds me I should pick up the third book.

Nevertheless it warmed my heart to see that Austen still has loyal readers in today’s world.
