“So many books, so little time.” (Frank Zappa)
“Some women have a weakness for shoes… I can go barefoot if necessary. I have a weakness for books.” (Oprah Winfrey)
“I believe we have an obligation to read for pleasure, in private and in public places. If we read for pleasure, if others see us reading, then we learn, we exercise our imaginations. We show others that reading is a good thing.” (Neil Gaiman)
As an avid reader, I read anytime at anywhere. I always feel connected to people who loves to read, I even fall in love with book characters who love reading. That’s why I created this blog, to show what books I read, how I love it and to appreciate people who love to read.
I think I never go somewhere without a book or eReader in my bag. And when I see people reading at public places, I feel instantly connected to them. Yet, it’s still hard to find people reading at public places here in Indonesia. Oh, they read anywhere but mostly read on smart phone, most of them reading social media. That isn’t kind of reading that I thought. What I mean is reading stories, through book, eReader, newspaper or magazine.
When I see them, I’ll take their picture and post it here. If you are one of my “victims” I’m sorry didn’t ask your permission. Don’t have any harm meaning, I swear. I just want to show the world that you are one of my friends, even if I don’t know you. But if you don’t like the picture I take, you can ask me to delete it. And if you have pictures about people reading at public places and want to share, feel free to send it to me.
