If you’re escaping the Canadian cold this spring by browsing through the stacks at the local library, you might run into a cute stranger doing the same.
Here are 10 pickup lines to try at the library. (As with all pickup lines, use at your own risk.)
Go for the obvious:
- I just got a library card. Mind if I check you out?
- You must have some overdue books. You have “fine” written all over you.
Make the line book-specific:
These work best if you’re holding the book you’re referencing.
- Charles Dickens might have written Great Expectations, but I can surpass them.
- Wanna Middlemarch out of here and go get a coffee somewhere?
- We must be in an E. M. Forster novel. Any room with you in it is A Room with a View.
- I’m pretty sure Big Brother is watching you. On a scale of 1 to 10, you’re 1984.
- I wasn’t a big fan of “Eat” or “Pray,” but I’m on board with “Love.” You?
Strike up a conversation:
- (Pick up a book by the same author) Wanna start a book club?
- What do you look for in a man/woman — other than literacy skills?
- I want to impress a cute stranger with my book choice. Do you have any recommendations?
