    I enjoy it almost more than reading in a room or library.

    I just wanted to know if anyone else likes it.

    I have no idea how anyone can do this.

    They are moving, they are full of crying children, loud music played by chavs and often the faint smell of cannabis.

    It makes me feel dizzy just looking at someone reading while on a bus.

    I read books on the train. I've never read books on a bus before. You can't really, there's usually too much noise and I would get funny looks. Trains are dead and everyone's quiet and unless you stare at the floor or the ceiling you either read a paper or a book. I'm not gonna lie when I was younger and I would see someone reading a book on a bus, I was like "...the ****? Where do you think are"

    I've tried, but I can't enjoy it as much as reading on a train or in a library, because I'm scared that I might get too absorbed in the book and miss my stop.

    Sometimes I read textbooks on the bus. Otherwise, it's fifteen minutes to half an hour wasted each way, depending on where I'm going.

    i do. i usually read if its gonna be about a 30-45 minute bus journey, usually while listening to music so everything just gets drowned out, i also read on trains if im in a seat. i enjoy it as it passes the time and gives me something to do rather than just sit there. i dont bother reading if its less than that though so usually just settle for listening to my ipod instead.

    I read on buses, but only when I'm pretty sure that the guy next to me isn't going to start reading my book with me

    Trains yes, the journey is a lot longer and they tend to be nicer but buses? I don't think I could, a quick leaf through the paper but nothing more than that.
