Men look better with books

The Instagram account Hot Dudes reading tracks down and takes photos of man reading while commuting. The people behind the project say they "appreciate men with good looks and good books." And continue: "Reading is fundamentally hot, and who doesn't like to fantasize a little bit about the sexy stranger we spot sitting across from us?"

Writing starts at thirty

Is writing only for adults? This infographics shows that the majority of the successful writers have produced a breakthrough book when they were 30+. I think it's the maturity and the confidence of who you are and what you want to communicate that influence your creativity at work.
