The Perils of Dating a Book Lover

GalleyCat has this advice: "Never, ever, date another book lover--settle down with a baseball player, a rocket scientist, or sculptor instead."

One reader recalls "a doomed date":
I should have known by the crazed glint in his eye when I mentioned that [my name] comes from an Ayn Rand novel. "The Fountainhead is the greatest book ever written," he said with the certainty one finds only in people who haven't read much. And then he went on to give me lessons in Objectivism. I couldn't even make it to dessert. Which is a shame because that restaurant has terrific creme brulee.
