Have books, will travel

For a cross-country train journey, people bring a lot of books. But I saw more people carrying them than actually reading them. It's too easy to be distracted by scenery, or sleep. I certainly read far less than I had hoped to.

Although it boasts an activity car, a dining car, and a panorama car, The Canadian clearly lacks a library car.

But I was heartened to see this book exchange basket at the train station in Jasper, Alberta, full of good intentions.
