Reading In Public: What Books Are People Carrying With Them? (PHOTOS, POLL)

First Posted: 08/27/10 08:06 AM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 06:30 PM ET

Subways, airports, buses--we keep an eagle eye out and the moment we hear a page turn, our ears perk up.

We're on the lookout for what people are reading. Sometimes you can tell a lot about a person just by what they're reading. And, who knows, you may even get a great book idea when you least expect it.

So next time you bring a book out with you in public, be careful. You could end up on our site!

We'd love for you to tell us what book you've been seen reading lately, and what you think of other readers' picks.
