Anybody dating on the site? Share your stories. Flavorpill has graciously put together a list of 25 bookworm pickup lines. Here are three of our favorites:

(1) “Do you know how I can contact Sherlock Holmes? Because I need to solve the mystery of how to win your heart.”
(2) “I’m looking for a Malcolm Gladwell fan who can get me over the tipping point in the blink of an eye.”
(3) “Hey, baby, the sun is not the only thing that also rises.”

Correspondent’s Note: If you try out the site and have an experience you want to share, please e-mail Maryann.
