NYC poet-blogger TryBecca has a great list of ten books whose readers she won’t sit next to on the train (h/t Whet). Her #9, my #1, is Giant Millipedes: The Enthusiast’s Handbook.

Her commenters manage to turn the thread around and wind up discussing which books and DVDs usually get them a solo seat. Is there a Chicago version — a title that guarantees you stretching room all the way in from Evanston, or Woodstock?
