Magical reading garden.

"Το βιβλίο είναι ένας κήπος που μεταφέρεις στην τσέπη σου". Πόσοι πίνακες απεικονίζουν αναγνώστες αφοσιωμένους στις σελίδες του αγαπημένου τους βιβλίου ή την στιγμή του στοχασμού επάνω σε ό,τι διάβασαν. Η ομορφιά της αναγνώστριας είναι το θέμα του ημερολογίου μας που ετοιμάζεται και οι βιβλιοθήκες μας αυτή την εποχή μεταμορφώθηκαν σε κήπους ανάγνωσης.

Art and books inspire readers. Every woman likes reading in the garden. You can see it in presented photos and painting. Art shows and teaches us too that time isn't important and that it connects people.Our photo shoot was a nice experience, and we all enjoyed ourselves enormously. Try to say :
Which painting is in the original? (An Author and Title)
Do you know persons in next photos? (Names)
Can you make a suggestion about reading? (Quotes)

"A book is like a garden carried in a pocket" (Chinese proverb).For keen readers is so beautiful like a favorite flower, for those who don't like reading is like a cactus.
We hope you agree with us. Show us "your reading garden" please.

Well, here you are:
