A year or so ago I ran across an essay about why you should date a girl who reads by Rosemarie Urquico. You’d have to ask Brett, but I’m pretty sure he’d agree that dating a girl who reads was better than dating ones who didn’t. In fact, we’ve had a few conversations along those very lines. Even better, I dated a boy who reads and it’s been great.
We have conversations about what we’ve read recently. We make regularly trips to the bookstore. We both have a list of books we want to own long enough to keep anyone needing gift ideas set for years. And when I say I want to cover two walls of our house with bookshelves and include a library ladder, he doesn’t ask why, he only asks how.
We have very different reading styles. We have different tastes in books. But we both love to read.
Being with people who read adds another level of interest to the conversation.
What have you read lately? Are you a bookworm? What do you think of other bookworms?
