I run our social media accounts, and today I wandered around the library looking for a good picture to post. In our lobby area, we have some relatively comfy chairs for patrons to take over. There were three students studying away, and I snapped a shot. Each student was plugged into their own little world, but they all had some sort of work to do and a hot beverage at hand. I was instantly jealous.
Seeming others read reminded me of the days I was one of those students. Closed off from the world, deep in whatever text I was tackling. Seeing these students read gave me a deep sense of nostalgia. Ah, to be a college student again, when reading was definitely a part of the job.
