Are you an avid transit reader? Do you whip out a well worn paperback the minute you step foot on bus or train? Or do you prefer the Kindle/Nook/tablet – lighter to carry, and no one can tell what you’re reading (is it romance? It’s okay if it’s romance, says the person who recently finished The Governess Affair).
What am I reading now? Night Shift, a short story collection by Stephen King. (And if anyone wants to discuss his Dark Tower series, I’m game. Blaine is a pain, right?) I’ve found that short stories are great for reading on buses or trains. You can usually finish a few of them before reaching your destination and not get upset that you have to stop just as the chapter’s getting good. Plus, Stephen King books read like eating candy – easy to digest horror candy. I try to leave the books that require me to do some research or deep thinking for at-home reading.
But perhaps you like philosophical contemplation during your morning commute. Maybe you like reading comics, or self-help magazines, or books on the Vietnam War. What are YOU reading now? Tell us in the comments and check back for more recommendations!
