Just one more reason to sign up for the Famous Friday [Round Up] – you will have something to read during your 50 mile commute home.

Washington has one of the highest levels of extreme commutes in the U.S.

One in five commuters in the region has a commute of one hour or longer each way. And the average commute is creeping up, too, from under 32 minutes in 2000 to 34 and a half minutes in 2011, when the information was collected.

If you want something funny and fast that will distract you from your fellow metro riders, be sure to sign up.
