The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Angst


Is this a Boston thing, or a national epidemic? (Or I guess an international epidemic, since apparently this book and movie are "international best-sellers." Can someone in London get on the tube and get back to me with some investigative research ASAP?) 

Either way, I can't really take it any more. Every time I get on the T, (for the past 3 MONTHS) there is some man, woman, or child reading this neon book, with it propped up in front of their eyes, so we can all see the cover, like we should all know that they're reading it, like this should tell us something.

Where did you all get this book? Do you usually read a book on the T, or is there some subversive hidden message in the first page which forces you to not only read it, but to read it as publicly as possible? Every time I think maybe I'm being silly about this theory, I'll glance to my left on the train home and BAM... The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. I finally forget about it and go for a run, only to be shocked as I pass a bench... The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo out of nowhere.

I mean, I might read this. I might even redbox the movie one day. But I'm not going to be PROUD of it, and I'm not going to be on the T. In fact, it's going to be a secret, like watching the Jerry Springer midget fight yesterday on Youtube. And I will not tell any of you until the day I die.
