Leafing through the Harry Potter or Jane Austen’s novels can improve your chances of winning your dream date’s heart, says a study conducted by the National Year of Reading, a British project to promote reading.

National Year of Reading Director Honor Wilson-Fletcher said: “Reading is a brilliant tool for self-expression. I love the fact that every generation seems to know that it can help us all increase our potential appeal in the search for love and romance.”

For those who find classics and poetry heavy, he added there is more to reading than that. “Websites, song lyrics and current affairs titles are just as important.”
