Get Caught Reading

May is National Get Caught Reading Month and last week the Open Books team went around the city snapping photos of people in the act of reading. Check out what they caught on Flickr. Do you see people reading on a daily basis? (I mean, when you're forced to look up from your own book, of course.) Snap their photo and submit it to Open Books's photo contest and you may win a prize.
