Train on Thursday: The Great Gatsby,

I travel with public transport on regular base. One of my favorite past times when in bus or train besides reading is checking out what other people read. I usually look these books up (especially when someone is so hooked they don't notice me checking them out) to see if they would be something for me. In this weekly I will introduce you to the books I spotted while traveling. Feel free to leave a comment with your public transport books. If you want to write your own post feel free to link your post in the comments.

This weeks book has been spotted around a lot. I think it is due to some movie with a certain person that people all of a sudden decide to pick up this book.

The Great Gatsby F. Scott Fitzgerald cover
The mysterious Jay Gatsby embodies the American notion that it is possible to redefine oneself and persuade the world to accept that definition. Gatsby's youthful neighbor, Nick Carraway, fascinated with the display of enormous wealth in which Gatsby revels, finds himself swept up in the lavish lifestyle of Long Island society during the Jazz Age.

This book is not on my shelves. I have heard about the story and it could be a book I would like but I never really felt like reading it.
If in need of a book in a situation where I would have to buy one and this would be on the table I might pick it up.

Great feature! I saw some woman reading a Kindle when I was on the bus back in Leicester the other week. It frustrated me that I couldn't nose at what she was reading, but on the other hand I wanted to applaud her for reading a Kindle!

As for Great Gatsby, I'd like to read it. Hopefully grab it from the library soonish. :)

I finished this one recently (review coming soon) and I didn't LOVE it, but it was good
