More Potterspotting

Waterloo & City Line spot

Continuing in my sightings of
people reading the new Harry Potter on the tube, I've now lost count of how many commuters I've seen with the book.

However, I think these were my first two suited and booted blokes on the Waterloo and City Line. The vast majority of people who travel on the line are usually reading about the latest mergers and takeovers in the FT or huge company reports, yet they can still get engrossed in Potter. I spose it's a "bit" of light relief for them.

Harry Potter on the Waterloo and City Line

As yet very few people I've seen reading it seems to be looking happy about it though. I've not noticed anyone laughing and probably only a couple of people smiling while reading it. It's almost as if it's some penance - "Must get through all million pages. Must be one of the first people to say I've read it". However, perhaps the looks of determination are just the fact that it's so gripping.

My, my, isn't the man above carrying a rather large rucksack for the Waterloo and City Line? Perhaps I should report......
