For a More Seductive Coffee Break...

I've always thought Carte Noir Readers was a genius idea (Really attractive British stars reading from classic Penguin books - how can this combination go wrong?)

I'm thrilled that they've just added Joseph Fiennes (of Shakespeare in Love fame) into the roster! You can see him read from Thomas Hardy's "Far from the Madding Crowd" here. 


  1. This is a fabulous idea, I think. I was having a difficult time paying attention to the reading while looking at the handsome Joseph Fiennes. I suppose this is not such a terrible problem...

  2. Same here. *cough*

    And, on a dorky note, I found myself looking at the set - love that bookshelf behind him, with the Buddha head on top... Love the Buddha head, too.


  3. Yes me too! The production value definitely has gone up from last year. The lifestyle sets are beautiful.

  4. Oh these are just fabulous. What could be better than a gorgeous man reading aloud from classic literature? And he's reading just to me, and me least, that's how I prefer to think of it. Sigh.


The exchange of ideas is a key part of the human experience, don't you think? I would love to hear from you.
