Blind Date with a Book! For the whole month of February, let us set you up with a date! Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy. I have no cover, so read me maybe? There are no awkward questions, no forced conversation, no judgmental looks, no need to call. Just have a blind date with a book! Here is how it works . . . Books of assorted genres are wrapped in brown paper, so you won’t know what book you’ve checked out until you get home. Sure, it might turn out to be a dud, or it could be the diamond in the rough you wouldn’t have given a chance otherwise. There’s no knowing until you check it out!
