What an impressive, silent and elegant way to show the importance of reading: Since 8 am this morning, Adam Bosze has been sitting in his antiquarian bookshop reading ... and reading ... and reading ... and reading ... Visitors and passers-by sit down, listen for a while, or join him in reading ... reading ... and reading ... Adam will continue reading from his favourite books on music until tonight to celebrate UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day and to raise funds for the children in South Sudan, who don't have the chance to read, because there aren't any books at schools as long as we do not care and try to change this unbearable situation.

This is amazing in its simplicity - the very heart of our civilization and the very essence of literacy.

Here are some pictures, we will certainly come back a little later to see and to hear more!
