It’s comforting to know that iPads and tablets haven’t completely replaced book reading as a leisurely way to pass time while riding New York City’s subways.Photographer Ourit Ben-Haim has been documenting the culture of “Reading-Riders” on her blog Underground New York Public Library for a few years. She writes of the project:

Ben-Haim posts photos daily along with the title and author of the book.
