Reading in Public
Ever wonder about people reading in public? Ever wanted to approach someone reading a book you read before or would like to read and talking about it with them? Well, one brave blogger does just that.
Without giving names, the blogger takes two pictures, one of book in hand and the other of the person and in between inserts information learned about that person and the story of their conversation. It is fascinating how the blogger delves into the mind of these people. It also reminds me how reading is both a communal and a solitary occupation. And of course, it helps that some of the books noticed were fantasy. scifi. Just looking at the first two pages, I saw Mark J. Ferrari's Book of Joby and a Kim Harrison novel. And many folks mention C.S. Lewis or J.R.R. Tolkien as favorite authors.
Check it out, its a really neat and creative idea.Posted by John on March 10, 2008 10:44 AM | Posted to Literature and Language
