The girl I had asked out on a first date is quite a bookworm. Reading is one of her favorite activities and she is especially fond of the classics (Jane Austen, Victor Hugo, etc.). I am not quite as versed in the classics as she is but I also enjoy reading.
So, for our first date I had idea to surprised her when, after dinner, I took her to Barnes and Noble (any large bookstore will do). Her „assignment” was to go pick out 5-6 of her favorite books. I did the same. Then we met up again, sat down in a quiet corner, and took turns talking about the book we chose (why we enjoyed it, reading some of our favorite parts out loud, etc.).
It was a great way to make conversation and to learn about each other, not to mention that reading to each other can be a really great way of getting closer to that special someone.
