A Blind Date With Books
Posted by Caitie F on February 13, 2011
My library has an awesome Valentine’s celebration to “Go on a blind date with a book” They wrapped a bunch of books in brown paper and decorated them, and you can check them out and find out what they are when you get home (or look on the slip you get). If you like it, you can write a review and they will share it with patrons. If not, you can return it, no questions asked! 😀
I got two, and my husband got one. I got a Patterson book and A Million Little Pieces, which I have been meaning to read for a while. Jason got Ford County by John Grisham, which eh isn’t interested in, but I want to read it.
I thought this promotion was so cute, I may go by tomorrow and get some more. I am going to read all of them, at least a little to see if I like it. I like the idea of just trying a random book. Yes, I know what I like, but I am often surprised. There were books I thought I would love that I hated, and thanks to bloggers I started loving genres or authors I never thought I would have considered!
Now, I can’t do this all the time because I have so much in my physical TBR pile and my list of books to read, but I like it every so often!
Does your library do any fun promotions? Our has done more lately for adults, which I think is a great pattern and I hope it continues!
