“What difference does it make in a relationship if both partners are notorious readers, or if one partner reads voraciously while the other has no interest in literature? Does “must love books” represent a categorical imperative, an optional extra or a quality of no consequence in a book lover’s search for an ideal partner?”
Maloney answers that loving a reader can be an added plus, but not a necessity. I agree on paper, but I’m not sure I’d be able to date someone who rarely opens a book, probably because it would mean they don’t value what I’m spending a large part of my life doing.
What do you think?
