Underground Books – 12th March 2010

A dozen books spotted today in about 40-50 minutes of tube travel. You never know how many books you’ll see but as long as I keep my eyes peeled I usually manage to capture about ten or more books.

There were four unidentified books by Diana Chamberlain, Raymond Chandler, John Grisham and Will Self.

Off to a saucy start with The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous by Jilly Cooper.

Then there was The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski


The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and Lucia Graves


Next is The Children’s Book by A.S. Byatt, who has been in the bestseller lists for as long as I can remember. I see that  Blackwell’s bookshop are pushing this as part of a 3 for 2 offer


An aspiring acress was seen reading Classical Monologues for Women which is one of the Good Audition Guide Series


On the way home I spotted…

A woman reading Who’s That Girl by Alexandra Potter


Then there was a copy of Burnt Shadows by Kamila Shamsie being avidly read by another woman.


Final spot for the day was unidentifiable but the cover was blue with very curly writing in white. It was being read by a woman in her mid-fiftes. The cover was so hard to read that I thought it said Jumping the Moon.

I have not been able to track down anything of that name or description though. Any suggestions gratefully received. Whatever it is will also get my nomination for the worst book cover design ever.
