If you’ve been moved by the spirit of spring to get outside and read a book, you’re not alone. In photos recently uploaded to Flickr, people are reading in public in all kinds of places, all over the world. Above, a woman in Amsterdam has set herself up on the street, in style (credit: ayalon).

A boy reads at a library in Malaysia. OK, he’s not outside, but he was too cute to pass up. (Credit: zakulaan@zainiabdullahpjk).
