Hot Guys Reading Books

benaffleck reading a book

Would you go out with someone who doesn’t read?  I have done in the past, but if I'm honest it makes me uneasy and I always tried to slyly slip a few of my must-reads onto their nightstands for encouragement.  (In hindsight, this was possibly considered very annoying…)

The Hot Guys Reading Books tumblr has been around forever it seems but was  a recent discovery for me that (quite literally) made me laugh out loud.

The site was a cheerful reminder of two things:

1.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder (Some of the pictures made me go really?, while for others I was swooning along).

2.  Men are made infinitely more attractive by intelligence (or the appearance of it).

I'm married to a super smart and successful guy that doesn't enjoy reading for pleasure while I do. It used to bug me..... but then I remembered...he has a passion for running.... which I clearly don't..... which might just bug him. Luckily we bond over a lot of other shared activities and don't sweat the ones we don't both embrace.....but I do love to see him in his glasses. :)

I absolutely agree. If the bf wasn't a reader, I don't think we'd have come this far!

As a super avid reader, I don't think I would have been able to withstand a guy who doesn't like to read. Thank God my hubs likes to...well...sometimes.
And I've never heard of this tumblr site! Heehee....some of those guys....I don't know....:P

My husband is way smarter than I will ever be but is not a reader. Unless it's business related. Baffling, yes but I still keep him around.

It's strange. Being someone who's obsessed with reading, you'd THINK I'd have a problem with a guy that wasn't into books, but honestly? It doesn't bother me! :) I find it absolutely baffling, but hey... each to their own, I always think :)

Fabulous. I love books. My husband is smarter than me really, but that's ok. We're just smarter at different things, but I love that hes intelligent and speaks intelligently too. Often using words people have to ask what does he mean, haha. It's quite funny and they tell him to speak properly or normal, but I think it's great he knows lots of things :) xx

I prefer readers:) I can´t imagine being with someone who doesn´t read at all. he doesn´t have to be in reading too much, but I think he shoud have the special kind of education which can give you only books:)

I know Emmy- I'd say a lot are posed and self-submitted! They have to be. It is so funny and crazy addictive if you have a bit of time on your hands though!

Great points u guys! I think the 'reading' is more related to the intellectuality than the intelligence. To me, it's not a deal-breaker as long as the guy is culturated, smart and hungry for knowledge.

I would certainly not go out with someone who doesn't read. Not that this is going to be my first question on a date: do you read?! But it's logical that I want to share my love for the written word.
