Looks like she finished the book and is now just staring at the inside back cover.

always loved this photo - a similar one was used for an anthology of irish prose a while back but the shot was fully face on.

Reminds me of an episode of WKRP, where amidst the wacky goings-on, Jennifer (Loni Anderson) is shown at her desk reading Ulysses, and over the course of the episode, she makes her way from start to finish.

But it wasn't until the third time or so that I'd seen it that I spotted the gag.

I think she wanted to read the ending first...
