Penguin dating

Lorcan 1 min read

I have just come across PenguinDating “where book lovers meet”, a partnership between Penguin and match.com.

You can go on singles nights in libraries and there’s even a hybrid speed-dating book club in a pub. Here at Penguin Books we’ve teamed up with match.com to create penguindating.co.uk. You can be intrigued, perplexed, turned off or turned-on by our singles’ reading habits. Now we don’t want to get too snobby here, because one woman’s Vampire Encyclopaedia is another’s love at first bite. A young buck reading a history of Goldman Sachs might be exactly what you’re after even though you’re busy stockpiling Marian for a week in the Balearics. Sometimes it’s enough to provoke curiosity when a person’s reading taste jars with your mental image of what they should be reading. That guy who looks like he’s just clocked-off from a building site, surely he can’t be clutching the collected works of Jane Austen? [Find Singles Online Dating with Match.com]

Lots of potential for libraries here ….

Smile: let's see your teeth

I was excited to discover the graphic novel Smile by Raina Telgemeier. The subject matter has strong personal resonances for me.
