    People read books outside a London bookshop during their lunchtime.

  • Description

    Titles read: "BOOKWORMS".

    London.

    Various shots of people standing and reading from books at the outdoor stalls of a bookshop. One woman eats a sandwich as she reads. Nice C/Us of people looking at books. A young boy speaks to an assistant and is handed the answers to the questions asked in his book on trigonometry.

    Few shots of children looking at books. The woman with the sandwich finishes her lunch, then marks her place in the book with a bus ticket and puts it back on the shelf. Commentator says "Let's hope nobody will buy it before she can go on from the same place tomorrow".
