Emma Roberts is heading to college this fall, but before she hits the textbooks she’s indulging in some recreational reading. The actress was recently spotted on the streets of New York City toting a copy of Secret Diary of a Call Girl. The autobiographical tome, written anonymously under the nom de plume Belle de Jour, chronicles the exploits of a 20-something woman who makes her living as a high-class escort in London. Sounds like the perfect beach read! If you’d rather chill out in front of the TV than bury your nose in a book, watch the British television series that’s based on the novel. Season 1 is now available on DVD.
