    Usha Venkat: “I took this picture of my mother during my visit to India. Reading a magazine after lunch is one of her daily routines. Not only does she enjoy reading, at the age of 84, but also continues to inspire us to read. She would say, ‘A good reading increases one’s knowledge.’”

    Ananda Rabindranath: “Both my wife and I love to read – but now with our 11-week-old son with us, our time to read is dropping. However, we want to make sure we foster a love of reading in him and what better way to enjoy the last light of the evening than by reading together about animals? He may not remember any of this but we certainly will.”

    Gillian Deveney: “This picture was taken on World Book Day. My oldest daughter, Grace, was reading her younger sister Isabella a bedtime story. I could hear her reading out loud and I remember hearing her tell Isabella a quote she had heard in school that day, ‘The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go,’ – Dr Seuss.”
