Did this happen to you alone? You and another person? You and several others? You and many others?
Were you in a bookstore? A library? Another place related to books? Are books relevant to the solution at all?

Reading relevant? Physical books? Text? Weird: unusual? Overly coincidental? Spooky? Strange? Abnormal? Weird Al Yankovic relevant?

Is your relationship to the other person relevant? The book you were reading? Were the two of you reading the same book? Discussing something related to the book?

I'm imagining something along the lines of talking about something unrelated (say, about a celebrity), and then you looked up and saw on your shelf a book by that celebrity. Anything similar?

Hint: Did I say we were reading a book in the opening statement?

Were you reading a book? Was the other person? Were either of you reading something else?

Were you looking at a bookshop online? Did you see a book online that you were reading at that moment? Was a webcam involved?
