Reading The Intuitionist, by Colson Whitehead. It's about elevator inspectors.

His favorite book? If on a winter's night a traveler, a novel by Italo Calvino. The reader is actually a character...in all of the odd numbered chapters! These odd numbered chapters prepare readers for what they will encounter in the even numbered chapters.

Picture to come--my friend took the reader's photo with her cell phone. Thank you, Colleen!
