On her brilliant blog, photographer Ourit Ben-Haim takes photos of New Yorkers reading on the subway—everything from the Bible to Lolita to Star Wars. There’s something vulnerable and intimate about these shots, don’t you think? It feels like witnessing a private moment.

What are you reading this summer? I’d love to hear your recommendations… (I just started this book.)

P.S. This woman has a six-and-a-half-hour commute!
