Reading? You Mean, Like, in Public?

Reading on the subway

Stockholm, Sweden has announced plans to add library book dispensers to the city’s underground public transportation system. Readers will be able to choose from up to 700 titles; no word on how the titles will be chosen, but no doubt five of them will be Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Just a guess. Officials hope that this convenience and opportunism will entice non-readers into reading again due to waiting and transit times.
