Blind Date with a Book

Blind Date with a Book

Blind Date With a Book is back! Take a book home sight unseen. After you’ve checked out your book, unwrap it to officially meet your date. Is it a stud or is it a dud? Who knows…you might fall in love! If things don’t work out, though, you can simply return it. No hard feelings and no awkward phone calls the next day.

Spice up your reading life today! Blind date books are available in the New Books section.
