Literary Pickup Lines (aka ‘Is that a Bookmark in Your Pocket or Are You Just Happy to See Me?’)

Since the summer is the best time to get lucky, we thought we would help you before time runs out with a list of literary pickup lines.

We’d be smitten if anybody said the following to us:

Welcome to my apartment — or, as the ladies like to call it, The Joy Luck Club.

Hey, baby, the sun is not the only thing that also rises.
Just like James Joyce, I know how to make a girl go, “yes I said yes I will Yes.”
I wasn’t a big fan of “Eat” or “Pray,” but there ain’t nothin’ wrong with “Love.”
I’m a classic Horatio Alger story — namely, Ragged Dick and Struggling Upward.

And then if you feel extra hopeless on the romantic front, visit this tumblr dedicated to boosting your self-esteem and providing you with every pickup line known to man.
