Seems to be a part of this nice pub-culture that every now and then, a man walks in with a book in his hand, sits down, orders a pint and food, and then reads. Every time I’ve seen one such at work, I’ve thought that they must be brilliant minds to think of such a good plan of action.
So, last two Mondays I’ve done the same. I have to say, I enjoy it. There’s a certain pleasure to sipping Aspall’s while reading a good book… I think it might be the mind, which due to the surroundings emphasizes the unknown and less familiar, bringing it to the front in the mind.
