Photos & Books: Two of My Favorite Things

This post is about a website with pictures of commuters reading on the NYC subway. I love to read, and do it every now and then during my own commute. Whether it’s a physical book, on my iPhone, or on my iPad, it’s an enjoyable way to pass the time until you reach your destination. I just hate when people read over my shoulder…

Feel free to post comments or share similar experiences, whether in NYC or elsewhere.

Librarian in the Making.

I adore this website. I love books and I love photography.

It’s called “Underground New York Public Library”.  From the About page:

“The Underground New York Public Library is a photo series featuring the Reading-Riders of the NYC subways. The photos come together as a visual library. This library freely lends out a reminder that we’re capable of traveling to great depths within ourselves and as a whole.  I’m Ourit Ben-Haim. I make the pictures and the posts. I’m fascinated by how we apply ourselves to stories and discourse. In so doing, we shape who we understand ourselves to be.”

Do check it out.  I hope you will find it as intersting as I do. 🙂
