Nice shot -- crisp and colorful.I'm wondering what's going to happen to book stores. Newspapers are already going out of business. Book stores will have to adapt or they might be next, I'm afraid.
nice catch of life in today's world. It's not often I don't see someone without an electronic device in their hands.It's getting to the point where I purposely won't take mine out in public for fear of being too much like everyone else. Well, except for my camera - I have that out all the time.
It used to be enough just to browse the stacks...
Heh, heh, very funny.Can't fight progress - new technologies, new way of doing things.On the bright side, this puts an end to flowery prose. Even on a blog, you have to put it briefly. This might be a good thing, this new Internet and texting language.
:) lovely caption!and of course beautiful capture!
Life was certainly simpler before today's wired capabilities. Part of me longs for that time ... and the other part eagerly looks for the new technology just around the next corner. Go figure!
I do have to agree with the fact that Barnes & Noble is a great place to hang out, but it's even better inside.
Love curling up with a book; can't do that with electronics, even a Kindle
Well maybe he was just letting someone know what great books he found. What???? MB
un moment de tranquillité ....et toujours un téléphone portable (je déteste ça ;o)) )
No book in sight either... I love books and bookstores, the smells, the quiet, the colors....but I have bought a Kindle, which I don't have yet, simply because it will allow me to buy bestsellers that will not be available here for a long time and that will be really costly once they arrive!
I am also afraid that mor and more bookstores will disappear, as technology already allows to read books on electronical devices. Just cold touch screens and no more more sound of turning paper pages?
I agree completely with Lyly's comment.
I must be getting old. I simple don't get texting in or out of the drivers seat.
I text a lot, but forget about developing spelling, grammar, or punctuation skills.
At least he's not driving while he's doing that!
Very crisp, nice candid! Wish we were able to sit outside and text here at the moment! I am so jealous of you Floridians. :)
I was going to say the same thing that Lois said. I guess I'm just old fashioned. (or just old) I want a book that I can hold and keep forever, on a shelf. I have loads of books, which is why I can never move.
Allison and I will meet you there for coffee and treats - we like scones or doughnuts! We're not picky!
He might have been reading a book on the BNbook reader app for the iPhone ..
Do you get these people who can't read books but can text in an altogether different spelling? Drive me crazy.
@ Ciel - Im with u, cuz it bugs the h outa me 2 cee peeps txtng when they cant rede 4 nuthin.
he looks very busy or engrossed in texting! heheheee
hee heeHe looks like a candidate for Carpal Thumb Syndrome...We can thank the unionized Educrats for the lack of spelling and grammar skills in society today...
LMAO, BTW, BFF, BRB, AAMOF, B4N, F2F, BYOB, OMG, WYSIWYG, TNTL, MYOB, JIC, HHOK, CUL8R Jacob;)
Bookless at the bookstore...:-(Three Rivers Daily Photo
@ Allison - Huh?
Jacob, Jacob, Jacob...you need to get with the "It" generation. It's all about texting quickly and using "chat acronyms." I wonder if Safe Leif can figure out all my "chats?"
Allison, I'm not really sure if Jacob has ever tried texting?! After all, he still uses an electric typewriter and a rotary telephone....
That looks sort of relaxing--nice capture.
Jacob, are u tyring to laern Frecnh?
@ Ciel - I am very trying! And I've been dabblin' around a bit...maybe in the future I'll get serious...
I really envy the B & N in your local, it's so cozy. Now, I have a lot to catch up here, been having trouble with my cable internet, bbrrr...
Nice catch, seems like this is the world we live in today. Back in May I was in NY and it looked like every 5th person I passed by on the sidewalk was texting.
