'Hot Dudes Reading' Is the Best Thing to Happen to Your Instagram Feed This Week

Feb 09, 2015

Men riding the New York City subway may want to ditch the electronic reading devices. An Instagram account called "Hot Dudes Reading" that launched earlier this month celebrates men reading literature, textbooks and other print media on trains that run through neighborhoods known for their literary residents, like lower Manhattan and Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Each photo caption either gushes about every guy or imagines what could be going through his head. For example:

"I'm sure he's 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"

Or:

"Ahoy handsome! Just caught a glimpse of this elusive beauty reading Moby Dick in the crowded waters of the L train."

Also,

"I may have to pretend to faint so he’ll catch me but I’m going to let him finish the last few pages of 100 Years of Solitude first."

And regarding this photo of a man reading a textbook:

"he looks like a man with goals. I bet his mother is so proud. In fact, he's probably on his way to see her now. #futureinlaws."

The account has even gotten the attention of musician Lance Bass, formerly of *NSYNC:
