      Funny & interesting little story. A good example of the problems that can occur when dealing with centralized datasets ported over from old systems.

      I’m wondering whether one of the original book buyers reads this story and gets in touch with Chloë! There must be a private book owner that gets wind of this.

      This is quite funny, and just perfect that it involves Dan Brown, the author of those fairly terrible Da Vinci Code series of books. Also funny that the subject of this story is a filmmaker who "ironically" reads him. For an ironic pursuit, that's a lot of read books.

        Haha, good observation :) maybe there’s something to the exclusivity of the book that makes the pursuit worthwhile on its own?

        I only read The Da Vinci Code itself, but wasn’t a big fan.

        Feels to me like this story of pursuing “187 Men to Avoid” could become a book of its own!
