Apparently, I’m a good catch because I read:


This is pretty silly. The biggest problem with dating a person who considers themselves well reads is that they will always think they have better taste than you, as pointed out here: http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.wordpress.com/ which is where I got the article in the first place. And I’m not ashamed to admit it, or to admit to liking a middlebrow book. I despise the whole attitude behind this article and the entire scene of people who feel as though they can truly judge a person by their tastes in art. I mean, sure, I do it all the time, but I at least admit it is a deficiency.

Anyway, women may read more than men, but, based on the high number of chick-lit books published and devoured every year, I don't think they can claim better (or worse) reading tastes.
