I was upset I couldn’t get a closer shot using my Blackberry getting the cover of the book much clearer, but I still like the scene.
He was seriously reading the newspaper.
She was seriously reading ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’.
Maybe she’s a member of a book club, or finally getting around to seeing what all the fuss is about. Whatever her motivation for picking up the book, she definitely seemed to be enjoying it, concentrating on the words, ignoring me and others around her.
It was very sweet when they got off the train, he opened his bag automatically and she placed her book inside, which he followed by his newspaper.
