I've gotten a couple dates from the book store. Here's how one of them played out: One day I go to Barnes and Noble. I head straight to the music section as usual, and just my luck, a cute girl is there to, and I notice she's reading a songwriting book, I also write music so I knew this opportunity wouldn't get any better so I had to go for it, or I'd be kicking myself afterwards. I start "looking for a book" a few feet from her, then glance at the book she's reading. "Good book?" She smiles and says yes. Then I ask "Are you just starting out with the music writing thing?" Then the conversation goes from there for a few minutes. Always being really conscious about things I start thinking "crap what if she wants to get this conversation over with and read her book" so I know I need to somehow get this girls number quick, but I have no clue how to transition the conversation into that. So eventually I fumbled my way into a date: things start getting a little rocky, a few closed ended questions happen, which always lead to awkward silences, and it's quickly becoming apparent that the conversation is getting awkward. So I just cut the conversation off and got right to it, "well, I'm not really that great at this kind of thing so... do you want to go do something next week with me, like get something to eat, maybe?" Tone doesn't translate over well when typed, but I actually pulled it off in a charming, I guess "cute" way, so it was a success, I got the date in my own weird way. We went out to eat, and I found out that this girl is kinda weird, she just said weird stuff all the time to where it kinda turned me off, so I didn't persue her anymore after the date.
It would probably be a little harder for you since it's typically the guys job to set up a date, so I figure its a matter of being able to show the guy that you're interested.
maybe the moral of that story is that only weird girls will accept dates in bookstores with guys they've never met before.
