THE COUPLE THAT READ TOGETHER …
No beach fluff for Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz. Vacationing in Jamaica recently, they both finished Sylvia Plath’s 1963 classic about suicidal depression.
PETE: The Bell Jar—it’s the second time I’ve read it.
ASHLEE: I stole it from him, and I couldn’t put it down.
PETE: She’s a superfast reader, which is, like, really sexy, but it’s so annoying if we’re reading the same thing. She blazes through it. It’s hard to keep up.
ASHLEE: We aren’t in a book club, but we had [our own] in Jamaica. We just read and read.
