  1. Hi Alex - I think you need to read the book Seen Reading by Julie Wilson. Julie Wilson's charming book riffs on what she has observed people reading on public transit in Toronto.


  2. yes, was just reading a review of it! i've been following her blog and twitter for ages!

  3. Have you ever thought to make bookmarks with books OC transpo commuters read on the 87 and then stick them on the bus?
