A disappearing art and lifestyle, as more and more people just surf their phones and more and more libraries are considered a luxury. A valuable documentary.

He looks sad, all wrapped up in his winter coat. Nice to have a library to visit, to read, and for a bit of company.

He looks a bit forlorn, sitting there reading to himself, but at least the library would be warm! Excellent candid, Malc

The Kindle is a brilliant concept, but for me personally an actual physical book wins every time.

There is a generation and a type of lifestyle that we are rapidly losing. If we were animals we and our habitats would be on the endangered list! Oh dear, too deep!

Anyway for venturing to post and give a positive narrative on the lost art of reading a book, I'm sending a gong. That tracing finger moved me...

Quote:The camera's IBIS ...

First reading - thought you'd written IBS - tricky cove - not at all pleasant - very difficult to remain steady ... 😳 🥴 ... relieved it's not that.
Splendid image and rather poignant.
