Last week I found it nearly impossible to spot the titles on book covers. This week more than made up for it. Unfortunately, I think I neglected to note a few, but there is quite a variety below. It was a good week for Jim Butcher with two ‘Dresden Files’ books popping up. I also spotting some pretty popular movie/book titles.
Here is what Portland commuters are reading this week:
Interested in one of these titles? You can find them at Powell’s.

Last week’s commute turned up some highly rated books. I have only read the Giver off of this list, though there are a couple I would like to delve into. Has anyone else read “We Need to Talk About Kevin?” I am not sure if I could emotionally handle it without snuggling my son the entire time I was reading (something he would not exactly enjoy), though there is a part of me that really wants to pick it up.
Most book lovers are curious as to what those around them are reading. Perhaps you want to add to your reading list. Perhaps you want to see if you have read it, or find a secret book buddy with tastes similar to your own. We all have our reasons. Inspired by the covert operations of Cover Spy as he posts daily about the books he has spied Subway commuters in New York reading, I decided to open my eyes during my daily train commute and see what Portlanders are sticking their noses into. The following list actually goes back two weeks. Enjoy!
