Oh my god - where was this when I was miserably single? Fabulous idea.

Wow, talk about pressure to pick the right book. Would you pick one that you could make insightful comments about, one that really represented you or one that you love so much you couldn't date anyone who made fun of it?

As someone who's actually tried speed dating for fun, this is a great idea! Much more likely to find someone you might actually want to see again. Great conversation starter too, rather than the awkward "Sooo, what do you do? Oh, you're an engineer? [pause] Uh, how - interesting..."

I want to be single so i can do it, it sounds like fun. Maybe I could have a passionate literary affair a la Possession.
