Nose, meet book.

I love National Geographic's photo of the day archive. Hear that, Nat'l Geo? I love you. So don't get all pissy because I'm posting one of your fabulous pictures, kay?

And look, here are the credits...

A student at a Turkish religious school buries his face in a book. (Photographed on assignment for, but not published in, "The World of S├╝leyman the Magnificent," November 1987, National Geographic magazine)

You know the phrase "nose in a book?" I think this is perfectly illustrates it. Either that or it was a very boring read.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
