Harry Potter Takes Over the Subway

Harry Potter subway reader

Yesterday, there were Harry Potter readers everywhere you turned. Every other person on the train had their heads burried in a thick book.

Today, there seems to be even more! Maybe yesterday made the closet Potter fans feel ok with taking their books out.

Most people took of the paper jackets on their copy, so all you could see was the orange and green hard cover. However, you still know it is a Potter book because people have them clutched to their chests as if they were made of gold.

Subway riders seem a little more focused on finding a good spot to pull out their books and read. The seats are full of HP readers. There’s some people standing, but that huge book seems like a bit too much to handle while also trying to keep your balance.

So here’s the game of the day. Count the Harry Potter books. When you are on the train later today, see how many you can spot.

I’ll kick it off with 6 so far.

Live from the subway, back to you in studio…
