Chasing Harry Winston and The Elegant Universe

Six Train Going Uptown at Bleecker Street
Love brought together the "chick lit" novel Chasing Harry Winston, by Lauren Weisberger, and the pop-science book The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory, by Brian Greene. Or at least that's how things appeared on the 6 train, as Lillian read the Weisberger novel and John read the science book. Lillian identified herself as a chick lit fan. John just started his book. They reminded me of the New York Times television commercial where the guy says that his wife reads the Sunday Arts and Leisure section and he likes to "check out the Magazine." But I didn't say anything like that to them at all.
