I am on the way to office in a bus/train and someone seated nearby is reading a newspaper. I would like to ask him/her to share few pages of his/her newspaper. Could someone give me some polite English sentences for doing this?


I would probably ask for specific sections (that they're not reading):

"Do you mind if I read the/your sports section?"

"Are you done with the front page? (If so, can I please borrow it?)"

"Do you mind if I check today's weather?"
