Who was reading: A kindly woman with wire-rimmed glasses perched on the end of her nose and the book perched right in front. A Jansport backpack rested on the ground between her feet.
Question for hipster readers: Are these backpacks cool on account of nostalgia or did that moment come and go? Or did I just imagine it?
Oh Pip... Why couldn't he get over Estella and choose someone sensible like Biddy?
Original ending vs. the revision? Personally I prefer the original, in which "she [Estella] gave me [Pip] the assurance that suffering had been stronger than Miss Havisham's teaching, and had given her a heart to understand what my heart used to be."
Waaaaaay less sappy than: "I saw no shadow of another parting from her."
