About Books—on the bus!
The Books on the Bus concept is simple: It’s a book club for transit riders. What better way to create community among passengers (finally, a reason to strike up a conversation!) and make good use of our collective travel time?
Every quarter, we choose a new book for BOB participants to read on their rides. Our current selection is “Hotel Angeline,” an amazing collaboration among 36 of the Pacific Northwest’s most interesting writers. Half of the proceeds from sales of Hotel Angeline go to support local literacy nonprofits—this year, Powerful Schools and 826 Seattle.
