While some of you may argue that men look their most strapping while catching a wave or strutting around in a leather jacket, we have a different scenario we’d like you to consider. Picture this: it’s a rainy Saturday afternoon with absolutely nothing on your to-do list and your dream husband (c’mon, we all have them) invites you to cuddle up on the couch and read. That’s it—no funny business! Just read. What do you do? Say yes, obviously, but not before you pull your favorite-ever page-turner from your bookshelf.
So, what’s it going to be: James Franco and Franny and Zooey, or a multi-hour Ladies of London marathon? In honor of Book Lovers Day tomorrow, we’re crafted a comprehensive gallery of 32 male babes reading, and looking really good doing it. Click through the slideshow above to check out the men who made the cut.
