Books on train

Usually I go to the office by bus but this morning I happend to take local commuter train. It's about 5 minutes train ride to Yokohama station, and the carriage was crowded with many commuters. There I saw 2 women reading books - yes ordinary books, not Kindle, not smartphone. They happend to stand side by side, holding the strap with one hand and small book with other, concentrated on the pages. And how smart they looked! Compared to the restless movement of fingers and eyes of other people checking the messages and information on their smartphones, their still eyes on the books and composure looked beautiful.
I know the usefulness of mobiles and smartphones but when we let them replace books we might have lost those calm, precious moments...
