Just read this about a small bookshop in NY who started a matchmaking board for singles in the store. What a cool idea!
One of the things that attracted me to A was his love of books (at last a man I could have an intelligent conversation with!), though he still doesn’t totally understand the purpose of fiction, being more of a just-the-facts kind of guy.
Our favourite date place was the Borders bookshop on Charing Cross Road (now sadly in receivership), and we always bought each other a book.
Makes me smile remembering…
