Dork Gallery

For ten years I've been collecting photos of people pretending to read my books, a tradition that was started by my old comrade Leah when she sent this pic:


Soon everyone was doing it, and I wound up with hundreds of them, mostly just regular old readers but also some celebrity types, running the gamut from Rick Nielsen to Rhea Perlman to Tobias Wolff, to Condoleezza Rice. (Possibly a unique gamut, if gamut means what I think it does.) I've always had lots of fun with it, and I'm glad to see the tradition continuing with the newest edition. But it doesn't hurt to solicit more, because if hundreds are fun, thousands are ten times as fun.

The gallery is here.

So, send me your photos Or not. Don't do it if you don't want to, that would be pretty dumb.

p.s. Leah also did this one on a Suicide Girls shoot. A versatile and talented girl. Talk about gamuts. There's also an Andromeda Klein Readers Gallery too. (John Waters!)
