A book lover's dating site

While going through my RSS reader (what would I do without you, Google Reader?) I saw one of my favorite librarian bloggers had posted about a new dating site. Now dating sites are something that librarians are well-versed in--and not because we're playing into the spinster stereotypes. Tons of people use dating sites, and a lot of the time we get questions about dating sites we may suggest, the safety of using one, and even help some people fill out their profiles (although we draw the line at coming up with your favorite activities beyond "long walks on the beach"). So it makes sense for me to post about this--after all, it would be safe to assume that most, if not all, of our patrons who come to the library and ask about dating sites enjoy reading books as well. So you might take a look at Alikewise, a dating service that matches you with your potential date based on books and authors. It just launched last month, so give it some time to pick up steam, but this one certainly has an interesting take on dating sites.
