Reading is not about the recognition, but pictures of people reading can help promote reading and literacy to new readers or those who feel reading isn’t “cool,” which we totally know it is. So get out there, take a selfie, and share it with your friends! You never know who’s watching and who you’ve influenced with your public reading pride.
