Reading the newspaper at the local coffee shop

Here's one of the pleasures of life: casually reading a newspaper in a comfortable chair at a coffee shop. When I saw this woman taking her time with her favourite pages, I must confess I pined for the pre-Internet days, when so many more of us followed the daily ritual of going through the paper. Now it feels like a bit of a luxury, often relegated to weekends and special occasions. Instead, we read electronic headlines, press our thumbs on tiny keyboards and gloss from topic to topic like flat stones skipping along the surface of the water.
