Photo Gallery: Reading on Muni
Heather at Flickr took this greatÂ photoset that combines everything I love: public transit, books, and a little voyeuristic view of what people are reading. From her photo set I spotted the Chronicle comic pages, the Examiner, a book called Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs, and anotherÂ called Fresh Air Fiend (by Paul Theroux, the internet said).
You can also findÂ kids reading a big colorful alphabet book, a biology text book (fish!), a book in Russian, and evenÂ a few shots of Chinese newspapers. I am really curious about this awesomely illustrated book and this tiny, worn-out leather-bound book.
On my commute, I’m still working through the second half of Haruki Murakami’s The Windup Bird Chronicle and Rilke’sÂ Letters to a Young Poet.Â Anybody got more book recs for commuting on the bus? Check out Heather’s slideshow above, revel in how many people still like to read,Â and see if you spot any more books you recognize.
