That is excellent. Books will be his lifelong companion.
Picturit: Absolutely, no doubt about that, Michael. This was in a bookstore in Atlanta and he was there with his brother checking out all kinds of books.
Astrid.
Wonderful capture, Astrid!
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. It was fun to observe him and his brother.

Oh, this is such a nice scene, and not so often seen now. Yesterday I saw a similar scene of a reading student here in Münster, but I didn't dare to photograph him.
Picturit: I think the student would not even have noticed you capturing him..... to busy reading, Philine.
Astrid.
I remember this like it was yesterday, Astrid. How adorable! And I LOVE your name placement. smile
Picturit: It was great to see these brothers so into books, that tells a lot, Ginnie.
Thank you,
Astrid.

I like going into bookshops in Thailand, and having to step over young kids in the aisles to get to the section where I want to look...there are almost zero public libraries in Thailand, so bookshops are somewhat serving that role.
Picturit: I think it is great when kids are 'hungry' for reading. That tells a lot and I think it is a good thing.

This is where it all starts Astrid. I remember reading a lot as a child
Picturit: As a child I did not enjoy reading, now I really do and I am one of the two reading during breaks at work, the rest is 'in their phone'.....
Astrid.
J'adore voir ce spectacle !!!belle prise de vue !
Picturit: Thank you, Claudine. It was wonderful to watch.
Astrid.
Wat een leuke concentratiefoto.
Ja, logisch onder het bordje met Astrid ;-0
Picturit: Het was geweldig om deze jongen te zien samen met zijn broer en ze snuffelden door hele stapels boeken heen.
Ja ik hou van puzzles and games wink

I think that puzzles, games and Astrid go very well together. How many days left before you move on to green pastures Astrid?
Picturit: 6 days..... two days until 11AM and next week I start on Monday till Thursday 8 hours again and Friday is Kings-day, a national Holiday.
After that day I have all the time in the world for puzzles and games HA...

He is reading Astrid - that will be an education for him smile Looks like you're in Barnes & Noble - I love 'em.
Picturit: I think you might be right about the name. It was great to see the young man reading on the floor and be totally into the book.
Astrid.
The magic of books. In Joseph's assessment at the top of his list of strengths was his love of books
Picturit: Indeed the magic of books and you can make your won story. I am so glad that Joseph likes books. How can we do without them??
Astrid.
This could well be our granddaughter Lauren, she loves reading, when she isn't on her games machine!
Picturit: I am so glad that your granddaughter reads and yes those game-machines. However do you know that they need people in IT who are gamers, they try to solve all kinds of problems...

He doesn't even know you are stalking him. He is going to have such a fright, that no amount of sssshhhhhhh is going to help, once he notice you aiming 'that thing' at him ...
Picturit: He was so in his own world. I too some pictures of him and he never noticed me...
Astrid.
That could be any of my kids or grandkids or myself - completely engrossed. I love it!
Picturit: I do the same as he does, NOT on the floor though, but you can lock me up in a bookstore and get me out next day... I will be happy.
Good for you and your kids/grand-kids.
Astrid.
That poster tells a lie - I don't think Astrid is available for loan smile
Picturit: Ha I am not for loan however I am in for puzzles and games smile

Picturit: No he was not, Ayush. His older brother with there and a few other kids in this section. Fun to see.
Astrid.
Puzzles and Games and Astrid. LOVE it!

Don't you just love this young man.
Astrid.
A great study in concentration... and a great sign too.

A child immersed in a book is a wonderful sight to see smile
Picturit: I so agree with you, Cherry. It was a joy to see this young man like this.
Astrid.
I see that there is still someone who loves reading
