He's a frigg'n poet that's not even drunk, what other kind of girl would he be interested in?

Thanks, lazaruslong. I am pretty tanked up on cough syrup and my brain isn't working as well as it might, so everything is seeming a little Alice in Wonderland to me tonight!

Girls who read...are sexy as hell provided it's a book I approve of.

I am not going to even apply that rule.

Girls who read are hot PERIOD.

Now to find a girl who reads who might like a guy whose neighbors call him "The Book Dude."

Yes, yes. A thousand times, yes.

Coming out of a long-term relationship, I am bound and determined the next go-around requires a Reader. A girl who reads.

If you please.

Really? How about girls who read Ayn Rand? And LIKE IT.

Oh, and I have this print of my favorite Picasso, seen at the Norton Simon: Woman with a Book.

Still hot, but I wouldn't go picking out curtains with her.

Because I go for cheap puns: this guy likes girls with big books, not girls with big boobs.

I've never dated a non-reading woman. I've never even explicitly thought of it as a criteria, but I have trouble imagining being really compatible with someone who doesn't share that pleasure.

From Tom Bissell's A Bridge Under Water: "Disappointment," he says, "is a beautiful woman reading Ayn Rand."

I find it hard to have conversations with people who don't read, much less relationships.
