Top­less book read­ing craze head­ing to Bri­tain

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE - By JUSTIN DUNN

AN OUT­DOOR top­less book club that’s got New York jaws drop­ping is about to hit Bri­tain – to urge our young lads to read more!

Lit­er­ary ex­perts have seized on the sexy Yank craze as a way of boost­ing boys’ in­ter­est in books.

The Out­door Co-ed Top­less Pulp Fic­tion Ap­pre­ci­a­tion So­ci­ety sees women gath­er­ing in New York’s pub­lic places to read books while top­less. The group started in Au­gust af­ter the city’s rul­ing that women can go top­less any­where a man can.

“We de­cided to read books at the same time to stop peo­ple both­er­ing us – they tend to leave us alone if we’re nose-deep in a novel,” said founder mem­ber Louise Stott.

Brit ed­u­ca­tion ex­perts are now look­ing at ways to en­cour­age sim­i­lar gath­er­ings.

One said last night: “Boys lag be­hind girls in lit­er­acy in the UK. If pretty top­less women read­ing nov­els en­cour­ages them to pick up a book them­selves, it can only be a good thing.”
