I miss living in a city where I could ride public transportation and, when I wasn’t looking down at my own book, check out what other folks were reading.
It was fun to see what books and magazines people were interested in, ya know? I like to know what people are into at any given time.
And luckily I stumbled upon an Instagram page called Subway Creatures that posts photos of all kinds of funny and weird stuff captured on the subway, including what folks happen to be reading.
So let’s take a look at some of the stranger titles that people happened to be enjoying on public transit, shall we?
Be sure to scroll to the right on the posts to see the different funny books that people saw.
1. She took this title literally.
And now she’s sleeping like a baby.

Stay far away from this one.
4. How can I turn this around?
I need them to understand me!
5. This looks like a fascinating read.
I can’t wait to dig into it!
6. This is a very important book.
It might come in handy later on.
7. Fun for the whole family!
Wait, is this book about me?
8. That’s ACTUALLY a really good book.
But the title tends to throw people off…
9. Important stuff. Scientific stuff.
The more you know, right?

You might want to hide this one.
