"His son too was buried in the magazine he was reading." The literal meaning of the word "buried" is "covered with earth, interred in the ground". In this sentence the word is being used in a metaphorical sense, to mean that the boy is engrossed in the magazine. The image is of someone hunkered deep in an armchair, so absorbed in his reading that he is oblivious to the outside world.
