Blind Date with a Book - Year 3

Here's my post from last year with the displays from my first two years of Blind Date with a Book.

Since I noticed a number of patrons checking their checkout slips for book titles and then returning the books unopened I changed things up this year to try to cut out that habit. I picked 10 books all about the same size, wrapped them and numbered them. When they get checked out it will be by number only until they get it home and unwrap the book.

This year's books are:
  • Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Persuasion by Jane Austen
  • A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
  • The Blind Side by Michael Lewis
  • Blockade Billy by Stephen King
  • One for the Money by Janet Evanovich
  • The Glass Castle by Jaennette Walls
  • Abraham Lincoln by James McPherson
  • A Slice of Murder by Chris Cavender


  1. Now that I have no cable I've been finding myself visit your blog more frequently. :) I am reading Gone Girl! (I know... so last year.... but it's good so far!)

  2. I haven't read it yet and I don't know that I will a friend who has similar reading tastes didn't care for it. It still has a really long holds list, our patrons are loving it.
