Blind Date With a Book

      During the entire month of February you can have a mysterious assignation - or as many as you like. If you’re up for a rendezvous, all you have to do is check out one of the books on display. They are all wrapped in gold paper, and you won’t know the identity of your blind date until you check out. Will it be fiction or non-fiction? Funny, informative, entertaining, or heart-breaking?  
     Get to know your date. There will be no uncomfortable questions to answer, no awkward lulls in the conversation, no need to even get out of your PJ's! Sure, you might be disappointed, but you may end up having a great time with something you would otherwise never have ventured to read.
     Each book comes with a ‘Rate Your Blind Date’ slip: if you’re so inclined, you can say whatever you want about it.
     Even if your date turns out to be a dud, (don’t worry; its feelings won’t be hurt), all is not lost! With each slip you return, you can enter a raffle. One lucky Blind Dater will win a prize from Roses in the Hedgerow. You might get lucky; if not in love then perhaps in literature.
