CHICAGO — Commuters looking for something to read can grab one of 800 books that will be available at "L" trains and stations across the city during Ideas Week.

The books will be available for riders to read while on the train Oct. 12-18. "All genres" will be represented, with books authored by Senator Claire McCaskill, Martine Rothblatt and Michael Strahan, among others.

The "Books on The 'L'" initiative will bring more than 2,500 books to "L" stations and trains this year, according to a news release.

* This story originally stated that some books would have a "golden ticket" to Chicago Ideas Week events. The information provided by Chicago Ideas was incorrect and outdated — there will be no golden tickets this year.
