The New York City subway roars beneath the city's streets, which means one thing to its riders. No cell phone or Internet reception. (Two things if you don't like climbing stairs!) I consider both to be pluses. No reception means no irritating, one-sided conversations and no furious fingers typing away on smartphones. It gives New Yorkers time to fill their idle moments the old-fashioned way — like eavesdropping on real conversations, or maybe even reading.
Because a blog that chronicles everything its writer sees people reading on the R train isn't enough, the New York Times asked its readers what the last thing they read on the subway was. The top magazine was the New Yorker, the top paper was the New York Times (good job, NYT!), and, more interestingly, the top book was The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
Since we're not all riding the underground, let me remove technology from the equation and put the question to you: what was the last newspaper, magazine, or book you read?
