I enjoy reading and I enjoy the ability of a book to tell me much about the person that I am interacting with. I must admit that I when I undertake my preparatory work on a target I do like to ascertain that they enjoy reading. If it is not high on their list of priorities it is not a deal-breaker of course, but I will not afford them the status of an intimate partner. I may allow them to become an inner circle friend but their lack of a love for books and reading does prevent them from being granted that ultimate status. Naturally, keeping them at a degree of distance does make them try all that harder and thus the fuel flows but I cannot allow them to become an intimate partner. Those positions are reserved for others and all of them must have an interest in books. You see, it is through understanding their favourite books that I am able to gauge more about who they are, what their desires are and what their weaknesses are likely to be. The insight provided by their reading list gives me all manner of information on which to found my planned manipulations. It need not be all of a certain genre, indeed, that is rarely the case. Those that read invariably have a wide-ranging list of favourites and that is all the more appealing. The book is such an attraction as it provides a basis for discussion, debate and comparison. One can spar over the interpretation one might afford to a particular tale or a character that appears within it. The speculation that presents itself over what one character might have done if circumstances had been different, is interesting and fascinating. Of course being able to engage in a topic that my target enjoys allows me to hold forth and have them admire me with their rapt attention.
When I invariably gain access to the residence of my target I like to peruse their bookshelves or even better still their study or library. As I glance across the titles and authors’ names I begin to gain a better understanding of who my quarry is and in turn I can shape the manner by which I shall seduce them. They love words in the printed form and I shall give them words, lots of beautiful, enchanting and seductive words that will be poured like honey into their ears. I am always pleased when I see that many of my target’s books bear evidence of frequent reading. To my mind, books should not be kept in a pristine condition but they should bear testament to the fact they are merely a conduit for the ideas and stories inside. I like to see dog-eared books, the spine cracked and with well-thumbed pages, annotations next to certain paragraphs and the ringed stain from a mug of tea or coffee. All of this points to my target having a great desire for books and words and this pleases me considerably.
I always enjoy picking up one of their books and holding it with the spine in the palm of my hand. It will invariably open at the sections that contain the more salacious elements for that is where the reader has dallied and kept the book open. It works every time. I balance the spine in my hand and wait a second as the book falls open with the pages huddled together exposing two or three separate sections as ones that have been repeatedly read and where the book has been flattened and held open as the reader has hovered over the paragraphs within. Usually the content is of the sexual kind although not always and may just be a favourite passage. Either way I am given further insight into what stirs my target.
Thus the collection of books of those I engage with is of particular interest to me and moreover I always invite them to tell me of their ten favourite books. They are usually novels but need to necessarily be so. I always ensure they tell me ten, they never fall short and try and squeeze in one or two extra but that is not permitted. It must be ten. Ten books that I commit to memory. Ten books that if I do not know any of them, I ensure I know of them. Ten books by which I gain insight deep into the being of the person who stands unwittingly in my crosshairs. The detailing of this list gives me a gripping and constructive look inside. Now, tell me which books are in your list.
