Reading: The New Sexy

via bookslut:

Yesterday’s Guardian blog, Culture Vulture, featured an entry on how reading can get you a date… and maybe more:

According to a survey of over 2,000 adults carried out by internet pollsters YouGov for Borders bookstore, books play a crucial role in influencing our opinions of strangers. Half of those asked admitted that they would look again or smile at someone on the basis of what they were reading… A third of those surveyed said that they “would consider flirting with someone based on their choice of literature”. It’s finally official, people. Reading is hot.

I, for one, am excited to learn that having my nose in a book in public actually makes me cuter.
