Leave newspaper behind

When you’re finished reading a newspaper or magazine on a bus or train, leave it on the seat so the next person who boards can read it for free. You can even write on it: I’ve read it, now it is your turn.

What an easy way to put a smile on someone’s face and cure commuter boredom with free entertainment! Better still, it won’t be cluttering up your own home.

It is possible people are more hesitant nowadays to touch thing of strangers. But hey, hand sanitizers can help!
