The best way for me to pass the time while riding transit is to read! I personally love audiobooks since I normally get carsick if I try to read a book. But if you can read while in motion, then your world opens up to eBooks and regular books! Did you know, you can even use your phone to read and listen to books? All formats of books are available for free with your library card! Whether you reside in Las Vegas, Henderson, or North Las Vegas, you can check out so many great titles! Here are my top five recommendations for books, audiobooks, and comics while riding transit:

  1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling – This is a classic if you haven’t read or listened to it already. It’s a great introduction to fantasy, if you normally read other genres. I highly recommend the audiobook. The narrator is fantastic!

  1. Bridgerton: The Duke & I by Julia Quinn – Thanks to the newly added television show on Netflix, this title is super popular. If you like historical romance, then this is the series for you. If you’re lucky enough to have access to Netflix, you can even stream the television show after you finish the books!

  1. Paper Girls Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan – This science fiction/mystery comic follows a gang of 12 -year-old newspaper delivery gals set in the 80s. What could be better than that!?

  1. The Midnight Library by Matt Haig – Imagine being in between life and death, stumbling upon a seemingly limitless library of books, each one contains a different version of yourself that you can experience. This is the premise of The Midnight Library, and it has concepts of mental health sprinkled in the magical realism.

  1. 10% Happier by Dan Harris – This is an unexpected, hilarious, and deep look into spirituality and self-help. It’s a really compelling introduction to meditation.
