Today I’d like to refer you to my post on Hay-on-Wye, Wales – the town of books on my travel blog Wandering Mee. I’m going to write in more details about the author events I went to, just for y’all bookish people, but for now, enjoy the story and the pictures of this lovely town :)
Another awesome thing that I found today was the series of pictures of people reading book around the world by the renown photographer Steve McCurry, the person who took picture of the Afghan Girl. Such a fantastic idea – which I would probably try to do too in my next travels. Below are a few of my favorites. Head to his blog to see more.
And the last one from yours truly :)
At one magical instant the page of a book –
that string of confused, alien ciphers–shivered into meaning.
Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment,
whole universes opened.
You became, irrevocably, a reader.
