Go out and capture pictures of books, people reading on trains, planes, buses, in cafes etc.

Take photos of bookshelves, piles of books, newspapers or people reading on their mobile photos. There are so many options!

Do them as street photography, portraits, and still life. Do them color, or black and white. Use bokeh backgrounds or keep everything in focus! The decision is yours.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
