Speed-lit is a variation over the well-known concept of speed-dating where you need to impress the other person in a few minutes. Speed-lit is the same, but here you bring a book with you and if the person you speed-date likes you, then the ground has been laid for something more. If not, perhaps they like the book you brought, so if nothing else, speed-lit may be a place to go for book recommendations?!
I’m not single, so I am not going to try it (and Odense is too far away), but the article says that the concept of dating and literature has been a succes in Australia and Belgium. And why not? I think it is a good idea, but apart from the book, its not much different from “regular” speed dating, is it?
