While we at the Riot are taking this lovely summer week off to rest (translation: read by the pool/ocean/on our couches), we’re re-running some of our favorite posts from the last several months. Enjoy our highlight reel, and we’ll be back with new stuff on Wednesday, July 8th.
This post originally ran May 18, 2015.
“Hey, I’m having a really great time with you. Let’s capture the moment by taking a se… cond to read together from my favorite book.”
Inspired in part by the hilariously random Self Pop Tart meme from a few years ago, I thought it’d be fun (and equally random) to find pictures of people taking selfies and replacing the phones with, of course, books.
The result is surprisingly sweet. Look at how excited they all are to be reading! Now just imagine if everyone felt this way about sharing their favorite books.
(Warning: I think this is actually how most Book Riot Contributors are in real life, so be careful if you see one of us walking down the street.)
