Opening up the laptop shouldn't have to mean setting aside the books. Next time you're in the market for some literary tumblr procrastination, click over to these blogs. They're must-follows:

1. Awesome People Reading: The title is pretty self explanatory, but click through to see anyone from Grace Kelly to Andy Warhol to Jackie O. make reading look really good. 

2. Bookshelf Porn: Despite the name, I promise this blog is totally SFW... but it will make your lunch break just a little more drool-worthy with these jaw-dropping bookshelves. 

3. The Final Sentence: They are on a mission to spoil every book ever, but scrolling through is weirdly inspirational. 

4. The Monkeys You Ordered: When you're in the mood for a laugh, click through for these literal captions to The New Yorker cartoons. I guarantee that for once, not one will go over your head.

5. Better Book Titles: They've replaced book titles with what you were really thinking when you read the book... i.e. Les Miserables OR The Pros and Cons of Prisoner Rehabilitation Programs. 

6. Times Haiku: If you're feeling nostalgic for that 5-7-5 poem you were probably forced to attempt writing in grade school, enjoy these surprisingly whimsy poems taken straight from the New York Times

7. Underground New York Public Library: We know you already check out what everyone else on the subway is reading, but now you can do it from the comfort of your computer. 

8. Title To Come: Aspiring writers everywhere will appreciate the struggles of writing and publishing a novel reduced to gifs. Plus you can never have too many gifs.
