I read books – not tablets, not ebooks –
actual proper books. I even go to our
local library to get books out as well as frequenting Waterstones. When I got
the train the other day, I was quite sad to see most of the people on carriage
fiddling with their phones or pumping music into their ears. Only two of us
were reading books.
So I think this Instagram account may be for me! 21-year-old Slovakian and self-described “supporter of reading books” Jakub Pavlovsky is seeking to change our gadget-obsessed society, one book at a time.
Pavlovsky has an initiative called ‘BOOK’S CALLING’ that aims to show the beauty of getting lost in the stories of physical books.
He captures portraits of himself reading while sitting in the same pose in each photograph and pairs them with quotes by authors, which he documents on InstagramPavlovsky wants to show people that it’s possible to “Make Time For Reading. Anywhere, Anytime”.
