    Let’s face it — the dating pool is tough. Whether it’s a duck-faced selfie on Tinder, a grammatical error on OKCupid, or just a ridiculous pick-up line at a bar, there are plenty of reasons out there to swipe left.

    Still, nothing is quite as telling as your date’s bookshelf. Whether it’s a completely packed library à la Beauty and the Beast (major brownie points) or a home devoid of books (perhaps they have a Kindle?) knowing what your date reads could give you just that extra push to keep them around for awhile — or move on. Here, a few thoughts on some books that might pop up on said date’s bookshelf — Fifty Shades of Grey included.
