There has been a quote by American writer filmmaker and art collector John Waters, shared around the Internet recently and the gist of it is that we need to make books “cool” once more. Apparently, if you go home to hook up with someone and they don’t own a single book, you shouldn’t sleep with them.

He has his Own Library; how Attractive

Although the advice given by Waters, famous for his innovative works and his cult film Hairspray, is a little bit extreme, it is easy to see what he is getting at. He is talking about how intelligence, which is usually associated with a love for reading and a tendency to have collected many interesting books, is a definite turn on. Indeed, a love for reading and a thirst for knowledge make a person much more captivating.

Of course, in this day and age, the publishing world is shifting toward digital format and the modern reader is beginning to change his or her habits. These days, you are just as lucky to be wearing your reading glasses while reading that deep and profound novel or collection of poetry on an electronic reader as from a musty paper tome. These days, you might find that you read short stories online or subscribe to intriguing and well-written blogs to find out about the world, rather than reading magazines, newspapers and other tangible periodicals. Nowadays, a full bookshelf is not necessarily an indicator of intelligence or lack thereof, because the person in question might have an entire library of fascinating reading packed away on their mobile device.

Love is a Spectacle to Admire

In this modern age, a more reliable indicator of an attractive lust for knowledge could be a pair of designer reading glasses. If you needed glasses for reading, but you didn’t really spend that much time reading, you might not bother to invest the thought and money into choosing nice ones in a chic style. However, designer reading glasses indicate that the wearer spends a lot of their time reading and so they find it worth it to choose a stylish pair of fashionable reading glasses so that they look good while doing so. Chances are, they see reading as a positive and enjoyable pastime and they are happy to wear their glasses while burrowing into a good book. If you are looking to find a romantic partner who shares your literary passion, the fact that they own designer reading glasses might be a good indication.

Of course, it is impossible to tell everything about a person just by observing what they do and don’t own. If you really want to find out if someone loves reading and has a thirst for knowledge, all you really need to do is start up a conversation.

In this digital world, the idea that if someone has a great literary collection they are therefore intelligent seems to somewhat diminish the belief that they are more attractive because they read a lot. However if someone wears designer reading glasses, this could change the situation entirely.
