Read To Me

Today Jezebel writes about a books shop that uses its cork board as a dating service.

The deal is people post what gender they are and what gender they are looking for on the cork board with a list of their favorite books and a way to contact them.

Now, that's sweet, but it makes me wish someone would create an online dating site based on this premise. I would fucking buy a subscription just to fuck with the system.

Each and every day I would post a list of completely improbable books as my favorites and dare the system to match me with someone.

I think this would be my first shot.

That I'm a man seeking a woman and here are my favorite books:

Intercourse by Andrea Dworkin

American Psycho by Brett Easton Ellis

The King James Bible

Watermelon by Marian Keynes

The Turner Diaries by William Luther Pierce

and

He's Just Not Into You
