Celebrities are just like us when it comes to books—they can’t put them down and are always buying more! When these actors/actresses aren’t filming, writing, or directing, they're reading. Here are a few famous celebs who love books just as much as we do.




Chris Pine

The talented and oh so handsome Star Trek star broke the internet with this candid pic of him holding a bag full of newly purchased books! The actor is a known book lover and supporter of SAG-AFTRA Foundation's Storyline Online, a children’s literacy campaign. He loves kids and supporting local bookstores?! He truly is the best Chris is Hollywood.




Sandra Oh

We’ve talked about the literary roles we want/dream of Sandra Oh playing, seen here. But did you know that this Emmy winner is also a huge book nerd? Even more reasons to love her! She’s even narrated an audiobook: Human Acts by Han Kang. We’d listen to her read aloud any day.




Donald Glover

Writer, musician, and actor Donald Glover is a true jack of all trades. And of course, he’s a book lover as well! According to the actor, “I have an obsession with books about kids with Asperger's syndrome. I like the way they think—it suits me.” That’s why he recommends reading The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time by Mark Haddon. Turns out reading isn’t childish.




Mindy Kaling

The eternally funny Mindy Kaling is OBSESSED with books! She routinely posts what she’s reading on her Instagram. Her reading selection is nothing to sneer at, either. Her tastes varies from modern romance to classic literature, and even inspirational memoirs like In Other Words by Jhumpa Lahiri. You go girl!




LeBron James

Yes, NBA superstar LeBron James loves to read! The famous athlete says that reading before a game helps relieve stress and that books are a welcome escape. Reading has even become a pre-game ritual for this LA Lakers player. He also encourages other basketball players to read! Maybe a NBA book club is in the works?
