In Common

The New York Times recently ran an amusing article about reading and dating. The funniest bit to me was mention of a woman who broke up with a guy "because he was very keen on Ayn Rand." I feel that.

Ack! I totally agree. When I spoke with Joel for the first time, I gave him my personal test. I told him what I was reading currently and asked what he was reading.

I usually got a response from men who would say they didn't read or just read the Bible. Hmm... Did they really?

Anyway, Joel not only commented that he had read the same author that I was, he gave me a list, yes, a LIST of books he was currently reading. As in more than one. One of which was a book in the Lord of the Rings. He said he wasn't a fantasy reader until he started reading these book.

It's been a match made in book heaven ever since.
