Blind Date with a Book

How do you choose what to read next?  Do you read everything written by your favorite author and then seek something by others who write similar books?  Do you follow the best seller lists for guidance?  Do you just try to keep up with reading what your friends are reading?  Well, maybe by now you’re ready to try something really different.  How about a blind date with a book? 

Starting Feb. 28 the Warrenton Branch of the Fauquier Library will feature a display of books that have been disguised in plain wrappers.  Each book will have a few short descriptive notes written on the wrapper to catch your interest, but the notes are just enticements to let us fix you up with one of these books.  You really won’t know what you’re getting until you take the book out. 

We’re putting up this display because we understand that sometimes it’s hard to make yourself try something new.  A blind date with a book could be the start of a whole new romance.  You might fall in love with an author you’ve never heard of, fall for a character you wouldn’t have expected to like, or even become infatuated with a whole genre you might not have otherwise tried.  We think you will be pleasantly surprised.   

Meet your blind date at the library on February 28th!
