Today’s lead story looks at Steve McCurry’s photographs of people reading around the world. Many of them exhibit a sense of intimacy, of the reading having a special bond with the book in their hands. For some reading is a way of staving off boredom. Others seek solace through books. Still others are looking for edification or information. Tell us: what does reading mean to you? Tell us in the comments.

And send us your photos of you or others reading and we’ll exhibit the best of these on our site in the coming weeks.
