Hot Guys reading books

Post by Misfit » Sun May 2nd, 2010, 9:39 pm

I spotted a mention of this blog over at Smart Bitches Trashy Books and thought it worthy of sharing, http://hotguysreadingbooks.tumblr.com/

I might be in for some major time suck going through the old posts :o :)

The guys, for the most part, are not really all that hot. But the captions are funny.

I kind of liked the older guy sitting on the porch steps reading myself :)

When they say Hot guys I'm thinking chiseled men all tanned up maybe slap some oil on their chest, in some swimming boxers, slightly sagging, and a book in their hand.

These men did nothing for me. Some were cute. But hot? no.

Totally agree with you, Divia. And like the funny comments.

Could go for the blue eyed guy reading the mini dictionary.

I like the guy on the train. And a guy reading a book always adds a bit of spice for me. :D

Sent this link along to a friend of mine who is a connoisseur of such things and she said "What a bunch of wimps!" :eek:

I must say they didn't do much for me, but then to me most guys compare unfavourably with my partner whether there's reason or not...lol. And yes, he does read books but he won't let me submit a pic :p .
