It’s a blind date

IMG_5897We 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.

IMG_5899The 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.

  1. I find myself reading “young adult” books on occasion, especially when I find some that are so much better than those that were available to my kids. Being able to “think outside the box” is a great example for young people.

    Isn’t it a shame that the library doesn’t communicate with its own staff!

    1. I thought it was strange that the librarians we talked to didn’t know anything about it, but then again it’s a fairly large library so that might be why?

  3. I love the idea of a blind date with a book! What an awesome way to find a new book! Don’t worry, I read YA books all the time. I often find them more interesting than books aimed at adults. I do, however, also find it a little strange that the librarians didn’t know anything about them. Strange.
