Reading Harry Potter could ruin men's love lives?
Hollywood News > London, Aug 24 : The next time you want to impress women with your intellectual hobbies like reading, make sure you don't pick up a Harry Potter or chances are that you will have the woman running in the opposite direction.
According to the Sun, a new poll by publishing giants, Penguin has revealed that women like men who read crime, thrillers and even classics would be a good option, but Harry Potter is an absolute no no, as reading fantasy gives men zero sex appeal.
Most women said that they would be attracted to men who read Nick Hornby's bestseller "How to Be Good," they also said that if men were seen reading romantic classics like "Wuthering Heights," it showed that they had a softer side which also worked in their favour. The five books that are likely to attract women are: 1. Nick Hornby, How To Be Good. 2. Ian McEwan, Atonement. 3. Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights. 4. P J Tracey, Want to Play? 5. Louis de Bernieres, Captain Correlli's Mandolin.

On a personal note, obviously those women polled haven't read or seen about one Mr. Lucius Malfoy.
Also, fear not men. There are still a large percent of women who wouldn't be caught dead reading any of those 'top five' books. That doesn't mean we're the impossible, just not total mushes.
**This news finder wondering WHERE they get these people polled. :\
