bus reading material

Lately, I've been spending a good deal of time riding buses (with destinations in mind, I don't just ride buses for the sake of riding them). And part of it means that I have books I like to read on the bus. Preferably paperback, because I do have to carry it around with me. I started rereading Harry Potter, but I stopped taking it with me on the bus after the third book because they got too heavy. And today, I finished Life of Pi. It was phenomenal. I had been meaning to read it for a few years now, but I finally bought the book when I met Yann Martel and this summer gave me the chance to read it. It is an odd book about zoology and religion and all kinds of things. But mainly, Life of Pi is a quirky, enjoyable, while still thought-provoking read and I highly recommend it.
