Capitalizing on the fact that hot dudes look way hotter when they read, the Hot Dudes Reading Instagram is prowling the streets and subways of New York in search of hunks unwittingly showing off their more intellectual and tender sides. I mean, you know when a fellas got the looks, but are you sure hes got the books?
The Instagram has more than 110,000 followers but only 13 posts as of this publication, so if you spot a hot dude reading a book, submit your pic to them!
Dapper Dude Alert! Damn. Whatever prose hes reading cannot match the beauty of that full beard. Hes like the hot English professor of my dreams, only with way better hair. #voluntarydetention
Spotted this scruffy prince on his morning commute. Probably to sculpture class. Im sure hes reading a collection of post-war Russian short stories, but really thinking of how he made love to his French girlfriend this morning and the gluten free toast they shared after. #marryme
Isnt he adorable? With that textbook he could be studying, or maybe hes just casually teaching himself to code. Either way, he looks like a man with goals. I bet his mother is so proud. In fact, hes probably on his way to see her now. #futureinlaws
Look at this Casual Casanova. He doesnt know it yet but that book is all about how personal interaction is essential to city life. If only hed look up from those pages. I want that beanie on my bedroom floor. #TheDeathAndLifeOfGreatAmericanCities
Sigh. This Clark Kent look-alike seems to have just flown in from Krypton to spend some QT on the F Train with us mere mortals. I may have to pretend to faint so hell catch me but Im going to let him finish the last few pages of 100 Years of Solitude first. #superman
Look at that wide power stance. No hands needed. This sexy stud owns the 4 train with the same confidence he probably exudes defending the zone at his pick-up hockey games. Hes not going to fall, but I already have. Hard. #theicemancometh
Check out this Brooklyn-bound boss material. Maybe hes an aspiring actor/writer/producer/director/nudist looking for tips. Doesnt matter, I love a man getting in touch with his feminine side. When will he get in touch with mine? Just kidding. #notthatkindofgirl
Tall, dark and handsome with a thick beard AND a thick book? This man must be straight out of the fiction section because hes too good to be true. If only he was patiently waiting for me instead of the E train. #YouKnowWhatTheySayAboutThickBooks
This Elijah Wood look-a-like is all hunk, no hobbit. He probably weekends in the Berkshires with his golden retriever, hiking and chopping wood with those big hands. He could trek to Middle Earth and Id still follow. #illtakethatring
Good morning, single bachelor. Nothing gives me more hope than a banker without a band. Almost has that dangerous Patrick Bateman vibe, but I can tell hes a nice guy on account of the black loafers and blue socks. Hes probably listening to Taylor Swift in those headphones. #blankspace
This brawny bookworm is too preoccupied with Poe to notice the rumbling of a passing train, or the beating of my tell-tale heart. His focus may be admirable but his attention should be elsewhere. #turnitonme
Ahoy handsome! Just caught a glimpse of this elusive beauty reading Moby Dick in the crowded waters of the L train. There may be other fish in the sea, but this white whale has me hooked. #reelmein
The book may be obscure but Im sure this crisp cutie is reading it long before it becomes cool. He probably spent all night dancing at the best underground party in Bushwick, and he still looks flawless. Cant wait to see his record collection. #stacked
