This summer the New York Public Library has been celebrating reading with pictures tagged with the hashtag #IReadEverywhere. Authors, public figures, and individual readers from around the world have shared photos of the unique places in which they read their favourite pieces of writing on social media. This inspired us at ZODML to share some amazing photographs of people reading around the world (and right here in Nigeria!). Check out the gallery below:
