Reading long ago

This photograph arrived in the internet mail recently.  What a surprise.  Looks like a nice place to be to catch up on your reading.

More importantly, this is my husband to be, but long before we met.  Little did I know what a keen reader was in my future.  Eventually though our paths crossed and one of our shared interests was reading.  It was the mid-60’s in Africa.  We were each newly arrived from separate parts of the world.  Exploring the local book shops became a favourite activity.  And this became my introduction to the vast array of Penguin paperbacks and quality British fiction plus the newly emerging African writers.
