on books and reading

Last week, Dwight Garner wrote a fascinating piece on commuting and reading: The Long Ride Home. I don’t read much on the subway anymore. It got to be too much heavy I was carrying around. These days I make sure to have enough knitting and if I remember my iPod. There is always at least one magazine in my bag, but unless I just came from the library, rare is the day I pull out a book to read on the subway.
