I read on the way home from work, but never on the way
to - this is because I walk. On the way home my feet
can find their own way - and I'm not usually in such a
hurry - also I use a different and longer route which
is rather safer. I'm sure quite a few of the kids and
staff at school have noticed this habit of mine, but
as I'm librarian I'm sure it hasn't done my reputation
any harm. As I have to watch for traffic I try not to
read anything too heavy (in the intellectual sense)
