Inspired by Worthington Libraries: Blind Date with a Book!
We started with ~40 books. Two hours later, all but four had found homes with library patrons (sorry, Flush, Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, Persepolis, and The ThingsThey Carried, they don’t know what they’re missing).
Now, to send forth a new fleet of exciting books into student arms. Whew!
It’s a blind date with a book but you can see their ISBN number? That’s like a blind date where the dates all hand out their Social Security number beforehand. How am I supposed to find myself in a scarcely populated restaurant on a date with a potential serial killer like that? Phooey!
(In seriousness, the idea is pretty clever, much more so than the fairly disappointing Scholastic Book Fairs my school used to have)
