Have you seen the tumblr Awesome People Reading? Above are Alfred Hitchcock, Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, and Amelia Earhart. More awesome shots below...

Audrey Hepburn.
Billie Holiday.
H.G. Wells.
JFK (and JFK, Jr.)
Roger Ebert.
Helen Keller.

P.S. Two other great tumblrs: Dads are the original hipsters, and my parents were awesome.

audrey hepburn just couldn't help but look classy at all times, apparently! i don't have that "i'm so intrigued both of my eyebrows are up" look down as well as she does.

Jo, you know what's a GREAT read? Mama Gena's Guide to the Womanly Arts. I just finished it this weekend, and it's had a fabulous effect on my outlook so far! Highly recommended!

I love that only about half these people are actually reading in these photos :) It should be called "Awesome People Pretending to Read While Having Their Picture Taken." Just kidding. I love this.

I wonder if a lot of people in the US know who Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin are. Isn't Jane the loveliest? And she's smart, sweet and funny too. She makes me love the name Jane (wink wink)!
