In July, I started co-op in Manhattan and have been commuting from home in New Jersey. This commute offers a ton of time to do absolutely nothing each day. Magazines just didn't cut it anymore since I could finish one in a single train ride. Why not make some better use out of that time, right? After all, you can only ignore the 20 bookstores I pass in Penn Station every day for so long. I've found that it really helps you block out the rest of the world during the commute and you are definitely less irritable with your nose in a book. It's quite calming actually.
