The fine art of book reading

Wednesday, May 09, 2018

To some in the older generation, there is perhaps nothing more pleasurable than turning the pages of good book, one after another, slowly wading through the words as they conjure up images and ideas in one’s brain. Yet, strangely enough, with the coming of social media, the Internet and book-reading apps like Kindle, not to mention good old television, the time we can afford to spend on having a leisurely read has dwindled, don’t you think? And as the pace of life further intensifies and people are involved in the race for education, homemaking and prosperity at the workplace, book libraries have all but become extinct as have second-hand bookshops. The world does change but there are many who still swear by the art of reading the old-fashioned way, even if they exist mainly in the older generation. We found this cute cartoon by Bill Whitehead that raised a chuckle within us and we share it with you – it might well be the scenario for book reading in the near future, if it isn’t already?
