Some people watch hip TV for the clothing and styles. Some for the music.
So I'm watching HBO's "Girls" and I notice what they're reading. Of course, it isn't for long. People on TV don't read. We'd be bored watching people read.
Anyway, the show I was watching -- and I'm at least a week behind -- had Hannah (played by Lena Dunham) reading her boyfriend's copy of Saul Bellow's Him With His Foot in His Mouth and Other Stories.
