I would not have thought Reading very attractive when one could drive just a little further from London and end up in Bath?
Chris: Err..I think you have misunderstood this
People of different sizes Chris... she should find out where her baby is!....petersmile
Chris: Maybe she's sold it..

Maybe he's reading as a form of an escape of what looks like a busy shopping day...great capture!
Chris: Thank you kindly Robbyne

Don't tell me they exchanged the baby for some books.....
Great shot of this (I assume) family.
Chris: Yes it looks like a fair swap doesn't it Astrid

Yes, you are so right - and I'm sure reading print-books will survive! Yes, where is her baby?
LOl ar Ray - I know this place Reading (pron. Reding), too.
Chris: He knows Reading too Philine
Looks like he is reading a book on mind mapping. Good street picture young Tiffo
Chris: I am obliged to you: he might have a book about where you can buy a baby or small child..

Reading as in reading a book? Or Reading as in a revamped rail station? But then it could be reading in Reading. Oh.. what the heck.. The boy seems to be doing it with his eyes shut.
Chris: I have worn red and been ready to read in Reading

A motley crew if ever I saw one Tiff.
Chris: The child on the left: his father was a superhero Chad. Maybe he is Alan Rolfe's love child?

Given the cover it looks like an introduction to the workings of the mind. A relief that he has started at page one Unlike son of Bat-Troll at the end how seems to be using his special powers to speed read with his eyes closed whilst rifling through the pages.
Chris: I think he's the family prodigy Mike, can sit & read at the same time
SuperReader is trying to use his super powers to levitate off the crowded bench, find the baby, and return with a Big Mac. He is very determined but every time he opens his eyes, he finds he is still with his same boring family. Reading lets you imagine anything.
Chris: He wishes to escape Mary

This looks like learning on the street.

Gutteridge is being rather violent in flinging out pejorative social comments about ordinary folk.

A PLAY ON WORDS: Readily reading a 'red rag' in the reed-filled meadows of Reading
Chris: Mr Gutteridge comes from the social elite Comrade
What wonderful characters in this picture. I don't think the lad will be allowed to read for long, unless its a 'What's on'.
Chris: As encountered in Bath Suzanne: compile your own story to suit
Nothing like a good book to take ones mind off other matters, particularly as the lady has suddenly realised that not only is the baby not in the buggy but its also not in her pocket where she was sure she'd put it after its feed!
Chris: Yes - it was there a while ago..
The fellow on the left is speed reading...
Chris: Thank you Larry

What a great sight, and not a phone in view
Chris: Indeed so Anne, just like life used to be..
What's happened to the kid who was in the push-chair? smile
Chris: That is the elephant in the room Tom
May it always be... smile
Chris: I hope so too Elizabeth
