Famous Authors Reading Famous Books
Ernest Hemingway once said, “There is no friend as loyal as a book.”
True that. I think that’s especially true for writers. We’re all loners anyway, right? So we got to have books as friends.
I say that jokingly, mostly. Now, I’m assuming these photos of famous authors reading famous books weren’t staged. Even if they were, these are incredibly intriguing photos from a pretty cool Tumblr called Awesome People Reading.
Take a look:
J.D. Salinger reading his own book, The Catcher in the Rye.
Vladimir Nabokov reading Pnin. Wait a minute, why is everyone reading their own novels?
Joan Didion reading Honey Bear to her daughter. Parents of young kids should love this one.
Nick Hornby reading his book, Fever Pitch, about his love of soccer. Or football, if you prefer.
Zora Neal Hurston reads American Stuff. Don’t know this book.
Stephen King reading TripWire, obviously at a Red Sox game.
