The New Way to Read

READWALKING: A READER IN MOTION

Reading in motion is nothing new or surprising. Many of us read while moving. The most common place is probably public transportation – subways, trains, buses, unicorns, however it is we get to work or wherever we’re going. But reading while walking still gets me stared at more often than not.

Not only stared at, but talked to. People seem to think that reading while I walk is an invitation to converse with me. They ask me how the book is. They ask me whether I really like it. They ask me what chapter I’m on (in the tone of voice that makes me know they haven’t even looked at the cover and haven’t read the book and have no idea whether it has chapters or not). They also tell me to be careful. Constantly, I’m told to look where I’m going, to watch out, to be careful.

2013 Arubadag, last Sunday, was once again a fascinating happening. It’s the day Arubans celebrate their Flag and National Anthem with music, singing, dancing, the Aruban cuisine and literature.
And being of born and bred proud Arubans, of course we couldn’t miss this one out. Naturally we were there also spreading the passion for literature like we always do.

BookIsh Plaza had a bookstand with Aruban authors’ books and books by other Caribbean authors, from children’s books, to history books, novels and poetry.  It was nice conversing with our readers and amazing to see people interested in literature from the islands.

Our published author Quito Nicolaas was there to sign his work and to speak to his fan base.

We had a great time and are looking forward for next year.
