While the morning and evening commute can be a pain, it's also ideal for carving out a slice of sacred personal time, during which you can indulge, guiltlessly, in a spot of reading.
If, however, you’ve chosen to ignore the march of progress by refusing to become a part of the Kindle generation, it can be difficult making sure you’ve got the right book in your bag to make the time fly.
