I recently found out about a really cool blog that features readers on the New York subway! Photographer Ourit Ben-Haim takes photos of New Yorkers reading on the subway and shares the titles of their books with her readers. There's something vulnerable and intimate about catching someone reading, don't you think? Reading is such an intensely personal and private moment. It's so easy to get lost in another world...
The blog essentially functions as a library and I particularly like that there are even hours listed for different "events" that are hosted on the site.
Do you like the idea? I think I might try and incorporate some readers in my next interviews.
