With the Olympics coming up, its appropriate to remember this awesome campaign Dwyane Wade did with Penguin.

The project began when Penguin Classics and the NBA asked Wade to help celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Penguin Classics and NBA Cares “Read to Achieve” Literacy Initiative by choosing a classic title. Wade selected Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudiceas his favorite Penguin Classic.
“I’ve read Pride and Prejudice a couple of times,” Wade explained. “It’s one of my favorite books, which usually surprises people. I guess they wonder how a love story from Regency England could be relevant to a 21st century basketball player from the Southside of Chicago. Class struggle, overcoming stereotypes and humble beginnings, getting out of your own way and letting love take over: these are things I can relate to, definitely.”

Amen Dwyane Wade, amen.

OMG I can’t believe my bf didn’t tell me he did this!
 Also, the internet should “hey girl” the sh* out of this.

Excellent taste in literature, sir. :) That’s my favorite too.
