5th Street Selma Avenue

I Can Read Walking, Standing Up, Sitting Down

Paul Papadeas

I feel like I got a bachelor’s degree in English by reading on the train, or at least I became an expert on sociology. I’ve read Rousseau, Marx, Gabriel García Marquez. I’ve read about politics and economics. And I’ve read screenplays, and everything in between. People started noticing me because they always see me reading. I can read walking, standing up, sitting down. I can read any way.
