Underground New York Library Project

I've heard of the UNYPL of course--I think every librarian has by now--but I wanted to post a link to it here anyway for the few of you who had missed it and just as a reminder to me to check it more often.  It's somehow soothing?  heartening? to see all these readers at once.

I am also jealous of anyone who has reliable public transportation and can spend those hours I waste driving, READING.  I know, I listen to audio books but it's just not the same.  I have high hopes for those driverless cars Google is working on.

Here's a pic on took on the NY subway sometime last century...
...but then mobile devices weren't so big a deal and it was a no-brainer to get shots like this.

(thanks to mahilly for reminding me of the link)
