Fun poll: What do you read on transit?

Do you read in transit?
What do you read on transit? Let us know in this poll!

Today, we are spending less time reading recreationally as we spend more of our leisure watching television, streaming video, and checking our social media accounts. The transit system might be the only exception—where reading, perhaps out of necessity, is still quite popular.

In a past Buzzer blog poll, we asked how you spend most of your time on transit. Most of you said you look out the window, listen to music, or read. In another poll, over 77 per cent of you admitted you’ve peered over somebody else’s shoulder to read what they were reading before.

Now we want to know what you read on transit in this fun poll! Is it the Buzzer, a newspaper, your textbooks, or is it a novel?

Let us know by voting for your top-five below, leaving a comment, tweeting us @TheBuzzer, or emailing us at!
