Reading on the subway

I love to read on the subway–and the bus, the streetcar–any transportation that I have to take, that takes my time. It’s relaxing, rejuvenating, entertaining (novels). Or I learn from it, gain new understandings (non-fiction). I’m almost always reading a book–or writing or editing my own–on public transportation.

Do you read on the subway?

A lot of people do. I enjoy seeing people pull out their books, become absorbed in a story. Sometimes I see a book cover that makes me think I might like the book, too, and I try to remember it or jot it down.

The NY Times has a great article on people reading on the NY subway. The article feels celebratory to me, or at least feel good for readers. What do you think?

Thanks to mitaliperkins for the info.
