You should have given her some Dr. Ransom! If she wants Christian lit, at least work her tough.
It takes a very special strain of hepatitis to make a guy glow lime green.
To paraphrase John Cage: "If a person doesn't own books, don't fuck them."
Those people look like boring twats.
Don't I recall you dismissing Goodreads (an independentish version of this very thing*) in these pages at some point? Or did I imagine that?
*OK, it's not actually a dating site, but people could certainly use it as such, I would think.
oh man. So, so true. I will totally dismiss a cute guy if he's buying a terrible book. But I'll also give someone a second look if they are looking for something awesome.
There is nowhere more fun to flirt than a bookstore.
I don't read books and I still get laid. HA!
Here's a test: if she liked The Fermata, she's kinky as fuck.
she didnt buy the left behind series from you, she bought them from the bookstore you worked for.
is it not boring to date someone with your same taste? having friends with the same taste can be dull enough.
@9 oh snap what a burn
@10 - dating people with different tastes is great, but dating people with bad taste is not recommended.
If it weren't for bad taste I'd get no dates at all!
Gloom, despair, and agony on me....
Oh sure. She says likes Nabokov now, but the minute that ring goes on her finger, it's a steady diet of Nora Roberts from then on.
@5 - Yes, the stranger totally wrote something about goodreads last year(?), or maybe earlier this year. I remember reading it
@13 Napoleon anyone who dates you has excellent taste.
I've been first dating a few times recently and I have to admit that if the guy says he doesn't read it goes into the negative column for me. He can have different tastes in books than me, but he has to like to read.
@14: And while he says he's reading On The Road, what he means is "this is my go-to title to sound hip and bohemian in the hopes that hip and bohemian ladies of loose morals will have hip and bohemian sex with me on the weekends before I go back to my 60-hour-a-week job programming phone systems for the government, which is interspersed with nights spent as a night-elf druid woman on WoW." Secretly, he's obsessed with the Tom Clancy Rainbow Six series, especially the later ones that Clancy didn't actually write.
I think I've only been hit on in a bookstore once- I'm there quite frequently, but I'm not what you would call a "looker". I didn't even realize until after it had happened, and it was by a rather cute lady- maybe she's into fat chicks- I'll never really know.
I like to slip the jackets for Left Behind novels over Harry Potter books.
@17: It's the Net Force books that were ghost-written. As far as I know, there's only one Rainbow Six book.
