Reading is Hot

Not only does sitting with your nose in a book positively influence others' opinion of you, it could actually - get this - lead to sex. A third of those surveyed said that they "would consider flirting with someone based on their choice of literature".

Well, duh.

Doesn't everyone do this??

Speaking of which, thanks for the book. :)

The #2 reason I didn't date much my three years in Chicago: I never managed to find the readers. You'd think the coffee bars of Lincoln Park would be teeming with the young, beautiful, and bookwormish, and yet, while the first two were plentiful, they were rarely also the third (and usually some sort of generic corporate-climber in the Loop, blech).

I probably should've tried living in Hyde Park.

I tried it, but got ribbed for my reading rather than chatted up. Perhaps I don't have a wise reading face?
