Today’s digital newsletter from the New York Times features a link to a dozen photos from the Times‘ archives depicting readers from the city absorbed in a book. As the article accompanying the photos reminds us,
“Even in the busiest of places, if you have a good book, you can retreat into solitude. And when you live in a city like New York, a book can be even more than a story at your fingertips. It can also be a respite, an escape, a sanctuary, a diversion, and a travel companion.”
If you have a subscription to the digital version of the Times, you can take a gander at these wonderful photos.
