I admit it -- I am a man who judges women by their books. There are some men who judge women by their looks, but not me. When I'm in someone's home, I always check out their bookshelf.

Is it a personal library of sf paperbacks? Is it a collection of coffee-table books? Are her books sorted in some way? Does she even have any books?

Yes, some people like women with big boobs, and some people like women who are so skinny you can see their ribcage. Some people do make passes at girls who wear glasses. But there's nothing quite as wonderful to me as the assorted scars of a woman who's too busy reading to watch where she's walking. As someone once said, if you've never banged your shin on a fire hydrant or said "Excuse me" to a mailbox, you're wasting valuable reading time.
