Are you still looking for the Mr Darcy to your Elizabeth Bennett? Cathy to your Heathcliff? Or even a playboy millionaire for a little B&D, if that’s your thing. What better way for bookish sorts to form a bond than over your favourite paperback? (Or ebook, if you’re that way inclined.) To celebrate World Book Night, we’re bringing back literary speed dating.
Broadcaster Jess McGuire will be your host, giving you five minutes with each potential paramour – plenty of time to talk love, life and literary predilections.
