We’re sure you know the pain of sitting on public transport with nothing to read. Your eyes dart around for somewhere to rest. You try desperately to avoid eye contact with other passengers. You look at your phone, but it’s died, and your soul has passed on with it.
Thankfully someone’s come up with a solution – other than re-reading the same real estate advert for your entire journey.

London: Three dispensers which print free short stories will be installed around London’s Canary Wharf this week, the company that runs the financial district.
Starting with “Mr Robinson,” a specially commissioned story by British author Anthony Horowitz designed to be read in less than a minute, thousands of tales will be available at the touch of a button, printed onto eco-friendly papyrus paper at no cost.
“I’ve always loved the challenge of the short story - creating a whole world in just a few pages,” Horowitz said. “I hope it will entertain tube travellers who will know, at least, that they won’t have the frustration of having to get off before the end!”
