Do you live in London and are you looking for love among other reading aficionados?

If so, book review website the Omnivore has you covered. With its new section titled The Omnivore Pin-Up, the Omnivore now allows London-based readers to post dating profiles on their site. In addition to standard questions like age, those who submit are asked what authors they admire and what they’re currently reading. Lucky readers will then be selected by the site's editors to have their profiles featured. 

One woman on the site, Jessica of West London, chose a picture of herself with the classic children’s book “The Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle for her profile picture, while another, Rob from South London, mentions on his dating profile that he’s reading “Oliver Twist” by Charles Dickens. “I’m going through a ‘read things you definitely should have read’ phase to make up for my misspent youth in front of screens,” he adds.
