Awesome People Reading

In light of my participation in the Novel Challenge/MS Readathon*, I thought it fitting to pay homage to some awesome people who love to read.

A while back I came across this very cool tumblr blog, Awesome People Reading, and couldn’t help but spend more time than I really should have clicking through the pages admiring photos of famous and inspirational people reading their favourite paperbacks, hardbacks, comics and newspapers.

Below I’ve attached a few of my fave pics, but definitely head on over to the full site to see many many more.

* I have so far raised $180 so thank you to you special people (you know who you are) for your contributions.  I stayed up quite late last night finishing George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones, which was, by the way, excellent! Now on to book 3, Friday’s Child by Ian Kennedy Williams.

  1. The one with Gregory Peck just makes me smile. :) Hell, they all do! What a cool discovery of all these pictures!

    And is it me, or did Michael Caine look something like David Bowie back in the day?

    • There are sooooo many over at the Awesome People Reading website; it’s insane! And I think you might be onto something with the Caine/Bowie lookalike!
