triple the fun--but where's pokey?

Even everyone's favorite talking clay thingamabob knows about this season's hottest accessory. We've captured GUMBY on film reading not one, not two, but THREE books. But Gumbs darling, we're a little ahh concerned by some of your reading material. Do you need a hug?

($0.35? Books were really $0.35 once?)

no objections here

From our "Super-Duper Obscure Celebrities" file, today we have old-skool PERRY MASON and DELLA STREET reading what I presume is A HUGE LAW BOOK. In this incarnation (CBS daily radio show) the two characters are represented by John Larkin and Joan Alexander. The old picture's kind of hard to make out but look how BIG his book is. We always knew Perry was hot.

P.S. Apologies to those of you got a sneak preview of this photo last night--apparently there's a keyboard shortcut for "publish." Who knew?

awesomeness caught on camera!

Our spycams (we're everywhere) caught the reclusive celebrity acrobat shark-trainer* @Bacillusk somewhere between Sweden and Belgium, reading HURRY DOWN SUNSHINE by MICHAEL GREENBERG. Inside sources reveal that the creature sitting next to her is none other than her partner in crime, stuffed bumblebee Klas-Göran.

*just go with it.

the hottest accessory on land or on air

For once, RINGO STARR is the hottest Beatle. We caught him here reading an UNIDENTIFIED BOOK on an aeroplane trip with George Harrison and others. 99% of the reason that previous sentence exists is so we could use the word "aeroplane." Oh look, we did it again!

Keep it sexy, Ringo.

She's try to stay undercover (see what I did there?) but the Twitter-renowned detective @theblacklily has been caught reading NECESSARY LIES by KERRY NEVILLE BAKKEN. Research for a case? Either way, nothing like a good book to make a girl look FAB.

where have all the good men gone?

The only things that makes a hot man hotter is a good book and a sidelong glance. Here is a young MARLON BRANDO reading a designer we don't recognize (do YOU know?) and looking cool with a capital OOH.

books: even hot in OUTER SPACE


I don't know WHO this is or WHAT HE IS READING, but he is ON THE MOON.

That's pretty superstar right there. (haha, get it? stars? moon? hahaha I kill me.)

triple the hotness

Here we have not one, not two, but THREE MORGAN FREEMANS reading A HUGE BOOK. Can you just imagine his voice in stereo? Supertastic.

And the most important thing to take away from this shot? No matter what you do to yourself (even if what you're doing is the '70s) books can make you hot.

By the way, for kicks and giggles, here's where that still is from.

we always knew she was fab

She sings. She acts. She has her own theme park. Her wigs and her breasts are the stuff of legend.

She is, obviously, DOLLY PARTON.

We here at Glam adore the Dolly One, and we are thrilled to see her sporting some hot hot hot accessories this season.

Here she is decked out in some sextastic glasses and THE LITTLE ENGINE THAT COULD--with her suit color-coordinated to the engine. Dolly's just TOO stylish for words.

And here she is with another childhood favorite, THE TALES OF PETER RABBIT:

And finally, for good measure, Dolly shows you another way to accessorize with books--and with pink bandana trim to boot:
We love you, Dolly.

fashion should be shocking

YVONNE CRAIG (or is that BARBARA GORDON?) is shocked--SHOCKED--by what she finds in BATMAN: DETECTIVE COMICS. We can only imagine. She of course would know NOTHING about Batgirl's activities. NOTHING.

the man can read a book

Caught on film lounging elegantly on a--something elegant and possibly brocade--it's William S. Burroughs reading a book that seems to be called WINDS. Proving once again that slinky reading is in this year and every year.

she's no dummy

Let's be real, it's hard for Harley Quinn to blend in in that ensemble. Here she is catching up on some light reading--and will you look at that pile of books! EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE FOR DUMMIES, EMOTIONAL HEALING FOR DUMMIES--Could it be her relationship with the Joker is on the rocks?? YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST!
