Some of us really have a thing for the ones who read.

There’s something indefinably sexy about a woman who would not mind staying in on a Friday night tucked in bed, making her way through a thick tome. Sometimes, their big librarian glasses make it easier to spot them. In a crowded restaurant. At the workplace. In the metro. They’re too smart to fall for your aw-shucks routine. They’ve grown up on heroes penned by Jane Austen, have a thing for British accents, and a man who knows his way around a library.

And we have just the opening one-liner to help you catch their attention!

This might be a little risqué opening line, but if she’s a good sport, she’d admire the witty Harry Potter pun. And your arrogance.

Extra points if you manage to say this to a lawyer. And survive to tell the tale.

Classic Austen reference. No self-respecting book lover will fail to swoon at this one.

Another fine reference. Pun intended. A library reference that will definitely make her blush, and get you a lovely smile as a reward.

lsr-04

Ah-hem. This one’s for those femme fatales who’d rather not wait around for that hottie to find them first. God bless feminism!

lsr-06

Bring out your inner Jerry Maguires, and try this on the Renee Zellweger you’ve been staring at the whole evening!

lsr-07

Because you can never have enough wand jokes. And it takes a true Potterhead to recognize this one.

What is your favourite pick up line? Does it usually work, or just earns you an eye-roll and a smirk shared with her bestie? We’d love to hear your story in the comments below!
