This guy was reading a book, and ignoring everything else going on all around him...

Moving into 2012, the photo was published in a Jan 25, 2012 blog titled "Ma veramente settecentomila lettori “forti” italiani non leggono più?" And it was published in a Jun 14, 2012 blog titled "How to become an expert." It was also published in an undated (early Aug 2012) blog titled "Apprendre Espagnol." And it was published in a Sep 3, 2012 blog titled "Parent Affirmation Monday- self-care 9/3/2012." It was also published in an Aug 16, 2012 blog titled "Summer bucket-list."
