Reading is an excellent activity that not nearly enough people engage in regularly, but you should always be aware of what you're reading and where you're reading it. Here's a list of hilarious and awkward photos that will show you why situational awareness is key when reading in public!

If you've snapped a photo of a commuter or stranger reading a bizarre book in public, we'd love to see it. And whether or not you have, you can vote for your favorites, too!

Awesome pic but nothing weird about WHAT he's reading just where he's holding it.

Big deal, it's a dude with a hard on! Y'all sound like 12 yr old virgins who haven't seen a cock before! If he had it out or was rubbing on someone, sure, outrage! But giving the poor guy shit for someone like that ain't fair. I'm sure most of you have gotten turned on in public. Grow up.

With his hand bandaged, it makes me wonder if he was trying a few of the techniques in the book last night.
