In the February 11, 2009 issue of Shelf Awareness, they had the above picture and the following blurb:
Last Thursday, the University Book Store, Seattle, Wash., held its first “Read Dating” event. Participants had eight minutes to chat about their favorite books and authors before moving on to the next person. Stesha Brandon, manager of public relations and events, reported that “a ton of people came, and I think even a few matches were made. We’re definitely going to do it again.”
Read dating? Really? I mean, I guess if you’re going to connect over something, reading’s as good as anything else.
So would you do it? If you were single, of course.
