Blind Date with a Book

Borrowed, yet again, from Pinterest and other libraries, this is my version of “Blind Date with a Book.”

I used YA books and wrapped them in pretty paper. I printed out blurbs on each book from Goodreads and put them on the front – careful to erase anything about the title, author & character names. I realized after that I had to have the barcode avilable – it wouldn’t be much fun to unwrap the book at the circ desk to scan the barcode. I probably could have done this a better way, but I felt through the paper for the barcode and used an exacto knife to cut around it. This took a little while….to say the least. Then I looked up some lame pick-up lines. That was pretty fun.

I think only one person has checked out one of these so far – and only because I told her to 🙂 Oh well, it looks kinda cool, anyways. Below is my flyer and some pics of the books on display.
