When books cause break-ups

March 29, 2008 at 10:55 pm (Uncategorized)

Liz just sent me this great article from the New York Times: “It’s Not You, It’s Your Books.”

It talks about how a (potential) significant other’s taste in books can be a turn-off or deal-breaker, and, since I’m a sometimes-judgmental bookworm, it totally resonated with me.

Also, one author says: “I do know people who almost broke up” over “The Corrections” by Jonathan Franzen: “‘Overrated!’ ‘Brilliant!’ ‘Overrated!’ ‘Brilliant!’” (I’m firmly on the brilliant side.)

    You need to let your significant other have some space. Do you just want a carbon copy of your self?
