Men who read are more attractive

Filed under: Uncategorized — plinius @ 10:13 pm

Men who read stand a better chance of attracting women according to a study. Women claim they are more likely to be seduced by a well-read man.

85% of women questioned in a NOP survey for the publisher Penguin said they would be more attracted to a man who talked about literature. But women would be inclined to judge men by the type of books they read. On this rating, reading Harry Potter scored very badly.

(The Times, 7 June 2004)


I knew it! Casanova, of course, became a librarian in Bohemia – at the age of sixty. Pity about Potter though. What type of books should we read?
