Making an Impression

A recent article in the London Telegraph lists both the top ten reads to impress a man on a first date and the top ten reads to impress a woman. The selections are based on a survey of 1,523 people as part of Great Britain’s National Year of Reading. Apparently men are twice as likely as women to fudge on what they have actually read. Here’s the lists:

Top Reads to Impress a Man: current affairs Web sites, Shakespeare,
song lyrics, cook books, poetry, Nelson Mandela autobiography’s Long Walk to Freedom, Jane Austen, Facebook/Myspace, religious texts and the Financial Times.

Top Reads to Impress a Woman: Nelson Mandela autobiography’s Long Walk to Freedom, Shakespeare, cook books, poetry, song lyrics, current affairs Web sites, text messages, e-mails, the Financial Times and Facebook.

So how would Americans fare on such a survey? What are your top ten reads to impress the opposite sex?
