#Literary Swag

I recently discovered an instagram by New Yorker, fashion enthusiast and writer Yahdon Israel. He started a new trend called #LiterarySwag.  His inspiration behind the trend was the idea that

“The kids who were cool didn’t read; the kids who read weren’t cool.”

He set out to change people’s opinions about bookworms not being cool by snapping pictures of fashionable strangers in New York reading in public.  Below are some of the pictures from his instagram that I really enjoyed.

    I can’t help but want to rip the books out of the hands of anyone who folds their book covers all the way back. This little trend is cool, but I’d definitely ask them not to do that. Even though they’d probably roll their eyes at me.
