Britney wants you to READ

Flavorwire has compiled a "quick visual history" of the American Library Association's "Read" posters featuring popular musicians (at the time). I'm unclear as to why Bowie is wearing a letterman's jacket in his shot, and that picture of a patriotic-shirt-wearing Britney Spears clutching the first Harry Potter is just a treasure, but my favorite has to be the blurry glimpse of Sting sporting mom hair and dressed up in what appears to be period garb, reading Frankenstein in front of a castle.

Only Sting, Elvis, and Yo-Yo Ma actually look like they may have been reading. Maybe REM, too; they kind of look like they're thinking, "Okay, you've pulled us from our books; what do you want?"

Are you saying you don't hold your books while doing weird ballet-style leaps, like Bowie's picture?

...whyever not?

I know, freaky that I'm such a sloth and generally sit when I read. :-|
