The state library of Victoria in Melbourne is experimenting with speed dating nights. Each person must bring either a book that they love or loathe “ensuring there are no uneasy silences during the series of five-minute dates.”
13 couples linked up for further dates.
Felstead said books taken to the first dating night included Susan Fielding’s Bridget Jones’s Diary, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams, and several novels by Japanese author Haruki Murakami.
Ned and I tell everyone we met at a bookstore. Maybe we’ll change our story to library. I actually love this idea.
