I live in Phoenix and drive my own car to get to the places I need to, it takes way too long from where I live to get to most places riding the bus (to get to school I would have to change buses at least three times). That being said, I don’t spend a lot of time observing people on their commutes to work (cursing at taillights does not count) but I just got back from a trip to Washington DC where I rode the Metro to most places. I have to admit I was amazed at the number of individuals reading books or ebooks while riding the train. I loved it!
I have figured out a downside to people reading ebooks on their various devices, I can’t tell what they are reading! I am nosy. I admit it, I want to know what others are reading. Are they reading a heavy tome to impress others or are they reading a fun mystery? I want to know these things! And I can’t do it without being obvious that I am reading over their shoulders. So those of you who ride public transportation regularly, how do you figure out what others are reading? Or do you even care and I am only nosy one out there?
