Extreme Reading is caught on camera
CITY bookworms have gone to extremes in a bid to win a photography competition.
Extreme Reading, run by Plymouth City Council's library service, asked readers for snaps in extraordinary places to promote literacy.
The quirky winning shots include a reader sat in a tree, a baby perusing The Times and a reader covered in beetles.
Winner in the 19 and over category, Rachel Burnard, took a picture of a skateboarder reading mid-air on the Hoe.

Of her choice of book, she said: "A typical Christie thriller keeps you on the edge of your seat, with a happy ending."
Winners have been awarded prizes including tickets to a Plymouth Argyle home match, a family visit to Dartmoor Zoological Park and vouchers for The Cresta Run at Plymouth Ski Centre.
Commended entries include a reader on horseback, a picture taken in Corfu and a self-portrait of Keira Jones hanging upside down from a trapeze.
Keira said: "I chose 'Dead Air' by Iain Banks as he is my favourite author and I have read all of his books.
"The subject of this book is the survival of the individual in the face of a chaotic world, which is a subject close to my heart."
