My favorite opening line on Bumble is, “what book are you currently reading?”

My other favorite line is, “I really hate chatting on these things. What do you need to know about me before we can go for a drink/coffee?”

I put it in my bio because – yeahhhhh, for me, if you don’t read that is a red flag and ultimately a deal-breaker when dating as well as making new friends.

For me, reading means that you understand that you do not know everything and value learning from other people’s experiences.

Hopefully, it also means that you know how to reflect and have an imagination, but that’s not always the case. Depends on what you are reading!

For your judging ease – here’s some of the books that I’ve read in 2019*:

The Trauma Cleaner by Sarah Krasnostein

Song of the West by Nora Roberts

The Small Shop by Auntie Susan

*this is a work-in-progress! I didn’t stay organized and now I need to remember what I read! Jeezzzz what a taskkkk. My Goodreads is a mess as well.
