Jumpy, once I was at a bookstore and was - well - interested in a fella.

So I went over, got Rampling in the most casual manner...and brought it back, asked him if he'd like to hear some of it..

bawhahaha!

Then I took him outside the into the mall into Victoria's Secret.

Poor man.

Angel, find Anne Rampling, and always know where that weapon is if you'd like to use it. Any man that's cruised that series is going to eye you like mad if you sit, read, then look at him followed by licking your lips and fanning yourself.

Heavy duty stuff. Go for it. What a set up......

I only check out the books if I'm out of reading material myself at the time; you will find a COMPLETE collection of Ann Rule on my shelves, as well as any other books on serial killers/mass murderers, or freakishly outlandish true crimes that I can find; the best gift I ever got was a hardback collection of True Crimes & Punishments from my brother when I was a teen; I devoured those books at the library, till they had to pull them out of circulation because they were worn out; the only other books at my house belong to the kid, and she is into Holocaust stories (Anne Frank, etc) and anything by Andrew Clements....

Dude. That's a great idea.

Next time I have a date I'm taking him to the flippin bookstore... If he doesn't think it's weird that I spend most of my time next to the war history books I'm taking him to my car and having sex with him.

But seriously, yeah that is a good idea. It would be a perfect way to see if this person is someone I could have more than one or two semi-deep conversations with.

I also do this all the time. I will even question the person on any particular book (especially those I have read) to see if they remember and try to figure out what kind of a reader that person is. I also visualized the type of relationship it could be based on the books I see. Most of the time I'm correct. And if I don't know anty of the book in the bookshelves, then it makes the person even more interesting

no book=makes me rethink the whole relationship

Any Kundera = done deal-long term
Bret Easton Ellis = interesting !!!
Any early 20th century russian author = it's love
Houellebecq = can you be my soul mate?
Anything dealing with politics and economics = at least we can be friends
Popper = wow a smart one-definitely a keep
Anne rice = again interesting!! We will probably fck
and Apolinaire, Sade = We are going to fck, now!
Seflhelp book = sorry this won't work and the whole it's not you it's me thing
To much fiction = sorry this won't work and the whole it's not you it's me thing
Only fantasy = get a life and sorry this won't work and the whole it's not you it's me thing

There is much more but it kind of becomes redundant!

Midland,

I bought an Anne Rampling book once, and had to ask where to find it. Apparently Barnes and Noble has an "adult" section.

When I bought it, the lady opened up a new register and whisked me out of the store.

I was mortified. I think buying copy of "Juggs Magazine" would have been less embarassing.

Go on a date to a bookstore? For some reason I think that would be an awful first-date venue.

#85: well, if they were both book worms it would be romantic. However, 99% of the posters in this thread are either being facetious or promoting the worst case of 'art fag' i've seen ever.




reminds me of that 'medicine cabinet' thread a while back. (you remember the one: "omfg so i told her she had herpes!")

I don't disagree with that, but ... maybe it's just me .... but I don't see a bookstore as a location that is conducive to conversation. Isn't getting to know one another a big part of dating?

Note to self. Hide porn mags etc. Before EB moves to Canada put out Engineering text books.

watch it though, since engineering students are seen as knuckle dragging neanderthal chauvanist pigs by canadian women. Maybe it's got something to do with that old incident in december a long time ago in quebec with the polytech students.

books are a good guage of a persons interests. If they have a bookshelf thats 1 point for them!

Don't keep the "The Multi-Orgasmic Man" on a book shelf.... mine is on the bedside table.

I believe scanning a lady's book shelf will tell you a lot about the relating potential as well. She'll really get my attention if she has any quantum physics books on her shelf.

Problem with all my favourite books is they are invariably loaned to my friends and many of them have this program where ownership is somehow automatically conferred by the act of reading the book....

seriously though, the best way to gauge a person's reading comprehension is to search the "stories/creative writing" "humor" and "poems and quotes" "recipes" and "travel" forums...heck, doing a little research on a person's forum postings is essential


EB for instance has nothing in the above, except 'travel'...and smile with your eyes has a RETARDED amount of posts in 'humor' *giggles*

See...me and my G-Friend go to the book store all the time.
Problem is we always spend way to much.
Now they should have a forum topic on books if you ask me

I'd never take a date to the bookstore. I wouldn't talk to her. Bookstores can be like crack for me. Yes--crack. Mmmmmmm.....

EB,
He doesn't like you because you can do math. In his profile he states he doesn't want any women who reads chemistry 101. So don't take it personal. Guess he doesn't go for the brainy type.

at Summer

I know exactly what you mean about the bookstores. If I even walk past one it will suck the numbers straight off my debit card leaving me penniless and wallowing in an orgiastic fugue state from the new paper smell. I finally stopped "cold turkey", my habit of buying first editions but can only hold off the craving for novels so long before my resolve crumbles like a sand castle in high tide.

Good things to find:

How to make love like a porn star
Anne Rampling or Anais nin
Serial Killer books
Clancy :)
Just anything that makes me think "hmm, now that is interesting, I did not expect to find that there"


I admit it, I do this. I've been a book slut ever since I was a young girl and I'm just drawn to them.

Since I already know how to make love like a porn star, I don't have a single book like that. But I do have a little erotica.:)
And the serial killer books are the bulk of my collection! Granted, most are fiction, but I used to have quite a few true crime works. I've always shared and swapped books with others and now I don't have them anymore.
Mostly, I have gardening books, decorating, medical, classics, and suspense.



Worst of all:
No books.


Agreed. I get more than a little disappointed when I can't find a damn thing.

A bookshelf tells a lot about a person. Easy way to find out if you've been lied to. Unless of course there is "the empty shelf". I'm usually out of there if all I find is a huge stack of porn. Those don't count! Sorry guys!
