NPR's Talk of the Nation podcast for March 31 was called "Books: A Canary in the Relationship Coal Mine?" This is from the NPR site: Rachel Donadio talks about her essay in Sunday's New York Times, "It's Not You, It's Your Books." She writes that mismatched literary tastes can make it "chillingly clear that a romance is going nowhere fast."
Are there any books that your mate or prospective mate might read that would be a relationship deal breaker for you?
I like readers, and mostly what they read doesn't matter to me. When I first contemplated the question, I thought that there is no book that would be a deal breaker for me. HOWEVER, if they read Bill O'Reilly's autobiography, and found it thoroughly provacative and resonating, I would have major problems with that. General literature of any genre would probably not bother me.
How about you? Any deal breaker books?
