Ever wonder what books your fellow straphangers are reading ?
Meet the "Underground New York Public LIbrary," a photo blog that catalogues riders' reading materials through a series of candid shots.
Assembled by photographer Ourit Ben-Haim, UNYPL seeks to lend out "a reminder that we’re capable of traveling to great depths within ourselves and as a whole."
Tickling the fancies of bibliophiles and photo enthusiasts alike, the blog even has a schedule as such:
Sunday- Friday: Posting daily
Sunday: A Sunday Morning Bible is posted.
Friday: At 12:00 PM I post a photo with an unsolved title. The Tumblr community helps me solve it.
Final post of the week: A Friday eReader is featured along with end of the week recaps and links.
Photographer Chris Arnade had a similar project, taking portrait shots of Brooklynites and their reading choices.
