Reading and Riding

In the great debate over e-readers, there’s one big con for me: you can’t see what people are reading on public transportation when they have an e-reader. Book spying is so much fun! Once I got on the T and saw a woman reading Tuck Everlasting. It made me giddy with literary companionship.

So I love the Underground New York Public Library, in which photographer Ourit Ben-Haim documents the NY subway reader-riders. It’s a fun reminder that, no matter what the panicked news articles say, there are still readers.

Click through to see more fun pictures of what subway riders are reading. Spoiler alert: The Hunger Games seems pretty popular right now. Good choice, guys!
