Books In Public

We love getting lost in our favourite book on the bus or train. If you love books too then you’ll love Books In Public. We’ll give you everything you need to get started whether you can’t get enough of your Kindle, couldn’t live without an audio-book to block out the overly friendly passenger next to you, or you just love the feel of a second hand book between your fingers.

From our resident book worm comes daily updates @booksinpublic to keep you up-to-date with what you should be reading on your commute, and if you just want the basics then the weekly read will give you all the help you need. Check out some of our public transport reading inspiration below and if you’d like to recommend a book for us to read on the bus or train we’d love to hear about it here
