Bibliophile love 2.0.

Buried near the bottom of the new Boldtype e-mail was this:

The majority of classic romantic novels end with either marriage or heartbreak. Now, book lovers around the world will have the chance to plot and develop their own real-life romantic stories as a major publisher launches the first online dating site aimed purely at literary enthusiasts.

PenguinDating.com was developed in conjunction with the established online dating provider Match.com after the publisher’s online team came up with the initial idea as a way to extend the brand and pique the interest of readers. While sites such as GoodReads provide a virtual community for avid book readers, the Penguin site focuses primarily on lonely hearts.

Thanks.  Could have used this fifteen-odd years ago.

Don’t they mean “literarily”?

  1. Hmm. I’ll have to sign up, just to see what it’s all about. I keep picturing two penguins walking the frozen tundra, holding flippers.
