eReading in the grass at Transmitter Park

This user is consuming the content item "The Outlander Series 8-Book Bundle: Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, An Echo in the Bone, Written in My Own Heart's Blood" on her portable e-reading device on an accessible lawn area in a public park; this woman is reading a book in the grass.

I don't get the satisfaction I want when I try reading on a digital device. Especially not outside. If I'm trying to feel connected to the outside world, having made the effort to go and be out of doors, I do not want a digital device tethering me to what I feel to be a confinement. Knowing in the back of my mind that it's connected to something or somewhere by signal irks me. How is a book the escape I want it to be if what I'm reading on won't let me get completely away?

I know what she's reading because I've Googled a phrase I saw on her reader on my camera.

My lens is sharp. My image is pixel-rich. My creep game is strong.
