A Reader In the Third World

My brother is married to a Paupa New Guinea citizen, and they have spent the past several months overseas visiting relatives; they just returned from the remote island of his wife's parents (they live about three days away by boat, and there is no radio or phone contact). He emailed the picture below of a man on the island reading my book...actually it probably just looks like he's reading it, because not many people on the island can read or write; in any case, I still love the picture. Below that, is a picture of my niece, which I upload simply because she is the most beautiful baby in the world, and should be admired by all.
