Humans of New York meets Porn for Women in this collection of candid photos, clever captions, and hilarious hashtags about one of the most important subjects of our time: hot dudes reading.
Based on the viral Instagram account of the same name, Hot Dudes Reading takes its readers on a ride through all five boroughs of New York City, with each section covering a different subway line. Using their expert photography skills (covert iPhone shots) and journalistic ethics (#NoKindles), the authors capture the most beautiful bibliophiles in all of New York—and take a few detours to interview some of the most popular hot dudes from the early days of the Instagram account.
Fun, irreverent, and wittily-observed, this book is tailor-made for book lovers in search of their own happy endings—and those who just want to get lost between the covers for a while.
The creators of @hotdudesreading are a group of close-knit friends/marginally-functional young professionals in New York City who never dreamed an inside joke about their borderline-inappropriate fantasies about studly bookworms would become an Instagram phenomenon. The account has racked up millions of views and has been covered by the New York Times, Daily Mail, Buzzfeed, Vogue, and many other fine publications. After almost blowing their entire advance on rosé, they’ve somehow managed to remain friends (and out of rehab) and can be seen snapping pics and chasing di—, er, dudes all over the city. #HDRTheBook
