Reading on Transit
We asked you, “What do you read on transit?” The results are in!

We ran a poll on the Buzzer blog and in the October 2014 issue of the Buzzer asking you, “What do you read on transit?” Well, drum roll please! Bum! Brrum! Brrum! We have the results!

In total, 105 votes were cast in this poll. You were asked to vote for the top-five things what you read on transit. News/newspapers received 61 votes – or 58 per cent of the votes followed by The Buzzer at 38 per cent and fiction at 35 per cent.

Mandheraj is reading The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson. Kristal K. tells us she likes to read novels:

I read novels mostly, usually paperbacks as they are lighter to carry.

Last year I bought a great thing – a pair of reading glasses with little LED lights! Now I can sit wherever I want in the bus and still have enough light to read by, even on the darkest winter mornings.

I have been riding transit pretty regularly (I carpool too) ever since I moved to BC 20 years ago.

Didn’t get a chance to vote in the poll and tell us what you are reading? It’s not too late! Have a suggestion for a poll question? Let us know in the comments or tweet us @TheBuzzer.
