Everyone's reading Middlesex

I still get a kick from seeing people reading the
same book on the tube and it happens more often that you would think. Not including the "adults" that are reading the latest Harry Potter brick (sorry - I can't see the appeal they have to anyone who's over 16 years old), but I often see people in the same carriage reading Haruki Murakami or Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones. I have also seen a lot of people reading Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, so was delighted to see a woman sitting next to me and a woman sitting opposite me both reading it today.

I feel like winking and nudging them in a "nudge, nudge, wink, wink" way, but they'd think I was a psycho.
