What do you read in the short reading moments?

There are times when you have a few moments to read, such as while eating or waiting to see someone. What do you read in these moments? Do you go for novels, short stories, newspapers, magazines or something else? I am a newspaper/magazine person myself, because I lose my place in novels if I read them like this. What do you enjoy reading?

I never go anywhere without a book. I take paperbacks that fit in my pouch. Wherever I need to wait or eat by myself, I read that book. I don't lose my place because I use a bookmark. Sometimes I'm only able to read a paragraph, but at least I'm not just waiting. I hate waiting.

I would lose my place in the storyline. When I read I guess it takes me a minute to remind myself what was happening, one paragraph would be just enough for me to remember then have to put it down again.

During any reading time, I'll just read what I have. Although I try to stay away from novels during SHORT reading times cause I'll be sucked into the story and I wouldn't be able to pull myself away from the book. Haha. I probably wouldn't be able to finish my food either.

I get sucked into novels as well, I am afraid that I would not notice people trying to communicate with me :D

news for the win. It is short, simple, and to the point. Plus it is nice to be aware of your world. Ignorance sucks.

I read the newspaper if I don't have a book with me. But if I am engrossed in a book. I am glued to it like flies on... You get my point. ;)

It depends upon my mood. However, I go for all of the things you mentioned. During any given week, I've read at least part of a book, the newspaper (most if not all days), magazines and various articles, blogs, etc. online. Reading and writing are two of my greatest passions.

I like bringing a funny novel like Erica Jong novels. Then I read them while waiting and surprisingly it humors me while waiting and I actually manage to put the book down when I should. Of course,I usually re-read the whole thing again :)
