Judging books by their covers

So I am on a 5-hour train ride to Cannes. Lovely views of the French countryside outside, dotted by storm clouds now and then.

Inside, is a view of a row of books in hands right down the aisle. Lovely, isn’t it? I hardly see anyone reading books these days, mostly seeing iPads and iPhones in hand.

The beauty of watching this is that one can see what each person is reading, and one can guess the personality of the reader through his/her book title and his/her dressing. It’s definitely more interesting than looking at the generic iphone/ipad and their plain covers.

Large round spectacles are really the trendy look here. I’m so glad I got myself one too! Parisien nerdo me!
