Seen Reading on the TTC
One of the more bizarre blogs created in Toronto has to be Seen Reading. It's the product of Julie Wilson's efforts to document what people are reading on the TTC. Not only does she keep a record of the name of the book, but she also guess-timates what passage the reader is reading at the time she spotted them and then infers some info about them and what feelings or emotions they might be experiencing at that moment in time.
Here's an example of a post about a woman she spotted on the Spadina streetcar reading John Steinbeck's The Winter of Our Discontent.
Now, someone has spied on Julie and it's our friends over at Dear Toronto. Just before Christmas they tagged along with her as she cruised the Bloor subway line looking for new material. Their video is embedded above.
