Blind Date With a Book: Results!

Last month, in honor of Valentine’s Day, the library had a Blind Date With a Book display.   Now it’s the end of March, and the Rate Your Date cards are coming back in!

Let’s ask our contestants readers how their book dates went!

"This is not the evening I envisioned."
“This is not the evening I envisioned.”

Results!

Reader #1:

Took home The Loveliest Woman in America: A Tragic Actress, Her Lost Diaries, and Her Granddaughter’s Search for Home by Bibi Gaston.  The date was Okay, and Reader #1 might consider taking out a similar book If the Time Was Right.  Reader #1 described the date as “Slow.”

Ralph
Aw, poor “Loveliest Woman in America”…

Reader #2:

Took home Ernie’s Ark by Monica Wood.  The date was Pretty Fun, and Reader #2 might take out a similar book If the Time was Right.  Reader #2 described the date as “Well-written.”

Reader #3:

Took home Bella Tuscany: The Sweet Life in Italy by Frances Mayes.  The date was Pretty Fun, and Reader #3 might take out a similar book If the Time Was Right.  Reader #3 described the date as “Intriguing.”

Selma and Moleman
“I was so depressed I ate a jar of expired olives.”

Let’s end with a real dose of book romance, with Reader #4!

Reader #4:

Took home The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton.  This date was Amazing!, and Reader #4 would Absolutely! take out a similar book in future.  In a surprise romantic twist, this book and reader have met before!  The Age of Innocence was described as “An old friend.”

So romantic!
Bicycling off into the sunset…So romantic!

This was a lot of fun!  Many thanks to everyone who participated in Blind Date With a Book–looking forward to next year!
