Susie Rodarme is obsessed with small press literary fiction and tea. Other notable skills: chainmaille weaving, using Photoshop semi-correctly, and drinking gin.

Frances Bean Cobain turned out to be quite a bookworm, and I’m not surprised; according to this Flavorwire article, one of her dad’s most prized possessions was a signed first edition of Naked Lunch. Frances clearly inherited the reading bug, along with some of her dad’s tastes in books, it seems–her reading selections often include writers like Jack Kerouac, Charles Bukowski, William S. Burroughs.

To go with your reading goodness, Frances Bean Cobain also often posts about art (Hieronymus Bosch is a favorite), comics, and music (Noel Gallagher changed how she listened to music). She’s a super-cool chick and she will enrich your Twitter feed.

I always love finding out that celebrities that are famous for non-book things are readers. (It doesn’t surprise me that they do read or anything, I just love it because reading is the best, amirite?) Which famous readers do you follow?
