About the Author
The creators of @hotdudesreading are a group of close-knit friends/marginally-functional young professionals in New York City who never dreamed an inside joke about their borderline-inappropriate fantasies about studly bookworms would become an Instagram phenomenon. The account has racked up millions of views and has been covered by the New York Times, Daily Mail, Buzzfeed, Vogue, and many other fine publications. After almost blowing their entire advance on rosé, they’ve somehow managed to remain friends (and out of rehab) and can be seen snapping pics and chasing di—, er, dudes all over the city. #HDRTheBook

The first is that Hot Dudes Reading is just a bit of fun. It is a cheeky use of social media that allows the anonymous author and its followers (all 848k of them) to have a sneaky perv at, essentially, hot dudes reading. Like Ronseal, this does what it says on the tin.
The second way to look at Hot Dudes Reading is a little less favourable. If we slightly change the context of this book it becomes a little sinister. Let’s call it Hot Chicks Reading. Offended yet? I certainly would be. I would feel a little bit creeped out. I would find it to be lascivious and a little bit voyeuristic as well as feeling like all the people in the book are seen as is a piece of meat.
The latter makes Hot Dudes Reading a quite degrading read when you think about it.
So let us air on the side of caution and just see Hot Dudes Reading as a little bit of fun. The word play is witty and sharp, the choice of ‘Dudes’ are not personally to my taste but I can see how they are generically handsome. Mostly though – and please make room for my inner geek – I wanted to have a closer look at what books they boys were reading rather than their biceps.
Hot Dudes Reading can be seen as a harmless bit of fun, however, if you are going to see it this way then you have to accept the opposite ‘Hot Chicks Reading’ if that ever comes out. Tit for tat, people.
