I was re-reading Neil Gaiman’s wonderful American Gods on the train home from work tonight when I noticed the woman sitting in front in me was reading American Gods, too.
“Snap!” I said, making her jump, and then she saw the book I was waving at her and laughed.
“What do you think of it?” she asked.
“It’s excellent,” I replied. “You?”
“Oh, it’s awesome!”
And then, because the book really is that good, we both nodded at each other, bent our heads and carried on reading like the junkies we are.
Reading. It brings people together!
