Sidewalks Of New York: Where You Find The Most Interesting Used Books

Posted: Updated:

I am constantly on the lookout for what people are reading in public, because every month we compile a feature updating you on what we've spotted being read on trains, planes, in restaurants and on park benches. But on my way to dinner last night, as I walked along Barrow Street in the West Village of New York, I spotted a lonely pile of books on the sidewalk, and this one caught my eye. No, nobody was reading it, but it at least looked like it had been read at some point. Not willing to risk picking it up to take home (I've seen too many dogs do their business in spots like this), I snapped a picture with my Blackberry.

Anybody else own a copy?
