Recently, I came across a collection of photographs showing young adult men reading. As a male, and a devoted book reader myself, I was inspired to see guys reading, actual books, in various places, all over the world. I thought it would be interesting to see if we, in this age of super-fast gadgets and mind-blowing technology, are still having love affairs with books. Not in that quick flip-of-a-newspaper or magazine kind-of way; I wanted to find images in which you could see a grand passion for good books—on the reader’s face; or in a captured gesture; even in the choice of reading location (in an open window, in a little book shop on a corner, in bed, or sitting on the legs of an elephant!).
I think I’ll keep adding to this as I come across photographs that I fancy.
Hopefully readers are still a majority in this sky-scraper world; although we are no doubt headed toward a minority positiion with the Nooks and Kindles and tablets and etc.
I love these photographs. I hope you will, too.
Cheers & #HappyReading…
