(Newser) – Tired of meeting up with a girl from Match.com only to discover—horrors!—she’s into Nicholas Sparks? Sign up for Alikewise, a dating site that matches you based on your taste in literature. It’s the latest in a string of niche dating sites like Cupidtino for Mac lovers, and was started by two friends—one of whom wanted to meet someone who’d read The Black Swan, Mashable reports.

Like a romantic version of Amazon.com, you can search for other users by typing in authors or book titles—and so far, it’s still free. But it’s not all based on love of reading: You can enter in information about your appearance, too, “because,” writes Lauren Indvik, “a common love of Shakespearean sonnets doesn’t ensure physical attraction.”

Finally, a dating site that understands your love for Hemingway.
