I decided to record what books other people were reading on their way to and from work during the month of February. So if you saw a girl staring at you and fumbling around with a pen and notepad, I’m afraid it wasn’t the start of a saucy commuter’s fantasy. I wasn’t going to offer you my number. I’m just interested in what you are reading right now, right this very minute…

One Good Turn – Kate Atkinson
The Brain That Changes Itself - Norman Doidge
Tiny Deaths - Robert Shearman
Humboldt's Gift - Saul Bellow

Do more women read books in general I wonder? Most men I saw were plugged into their own private world via ipods, or reading newspapers. Although look at the authors – most are men.
Maybe I should call myself Jim.
As for genres –a bit hard to judge as I haven’t read any of these but there’s chick lit escapism, educational books, ruminations on death, historical fiction, tragic lives, science fiction, and memoir. A mixed bag for our commuters! Wonder what March will bring.
