Decisions, Decisions - What's a Montana Bibliophile to do?

It is time for new plates on the vehicle in my new state, and there are actually a few choices for the discerning bibliophile. The standard plate is nice and simple, which I like for a standard plate. However, for a bibliophile who can't practically drive a bookmobile (*at this time*), it's nice to personalize the wheels a little to tell strangers how much I love books.

The first is of a grandma in a chair reading to two kids. This plate supports something to do with old fogeys. I mean that in the nicest possible way, perhaps even nicer. I do like this a lot. Is it the only license plate to feature someone reading? The next is a little ho-hum from the Montana libraries. Open book with the state as a cover. Not bad, but a little boring. The last supports the Montana Newspaper Association, and features a printing press! A little hard to see, but I think it's a Washington hand press, which if you've been reading my blog for a while, you know I love newspaper history and printing presses too. That leaves us with quite the quandary... What do you think? Which would you choose?

Hello, again. You have probably already made your choice and gotten a plate, but I'd like to add my two-cents worth anyway. I like the one you labeled "ho-hum" - the open book. Gotta support those libraries - plus, it's right out there, an open book, get it(?), no guessing what it means, the mssg. is right there for those passing you or sitting behind you in traffic.
