Anyone wanting to be a pin-up has to answer a series of questions: the sexiest book they have ever read, which author they have a crush on and what they’re reading next.
Curious browsers are invited to email and ask for a date.
Shelfari Shelfari is more of a social network revolving around what you read.
Use the service "to connect with new and old friends to talk about the books you are passionate about".
For the moment, The Omnivore pin-ups lists only around 20 members, most of whom are based in London and work in the media – including Nirpal Dhaliwal, the former-Mr Liz Jones.
Submissions to become a pin-up are still being accepted, but those applying for dates should perhaps be wary of seeing their meeting turned into a blog post or even a future novel.
Members are recruited through intelligent publications. We use a rotating advertising schedule in publications such as The New York Review of Books, Harpers, and the like.
