Setting: Modern-day USA.
I have two characters at the beginning of a relationship, and the moment that tips the scale from casual flirting to flirting with intent involves them bonding over something unexpected.
One characters is obsessed with sports (mainly baseball, but America football as well), and the other isn't, at all. My idea was to have them both be reading the same book, one that's about sport(s), but also 'good enough' that the non-sports-fan would be a fan of it as well.
Would anyone be able to suggest anything?
It doesn't have to be a book, but I think that would work best, as whatever it is ties in to the plot later as a present after a huge fight, so a book (preferably an old one) would suit that part of the plot better, but the bonding part is the most important, so something else might work instead.
