We went to the library last night and found this in the teen area. I cannot resist a mystery so I quickly called my daughter over and we both immediately said we didn’t know which book to select since #7 was missing.
Eventually I decided on book 8, she decided on book 9.
The concept is that you select a blindly select a book, and then you fill out a form that’s placed inside of the book by the librarian, turn it in and there’s ticket in there too. We aren’t sure about the ticket. Anyhow, the fine print says the books are for ages 12-18 …. I can totally pass for 18, right???
I was worried that the librarian was going to be all: Lady, you cannot go on a blind date with the book!
However, when we handed the books to the librarian the look on her face was priceless, and then she asked: WHAT IS THIS?? We explained, blind date with a book, etc…. she turned to the other librarian and asked: DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS?? To which the other librarian said: I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT IS….
That said, it’s safe to say that I’m not breaking any library rules. But I shall share my book with my daughter just to be fair.
In case you are wondering, there was a short description on the back of the each of the books to give you a glimpse of what they were about.
