Only a matter of time

My first new Potter spot

I wondered how long it would take me to see my first person reading the
new Harry Potter book on the tube. Well I spotted this guy yesterday at Bank station waiting to get on DLR train with me.

So that was only two days after publication. He seemed fairly engrossed for the one stop he travelled reading it. Personally I cannot see the appeal to adults (give me Philip PullmanI prefer Philip Pullman in this genre anyday), but I must be in the minority here. But good luck & well done to JK Rowling who's earning about a million pounds a hour out of the latest book. I'm sure this guy will be the first of many that I'll see reading this on the London Underground.
