Not so lucky in love? I may have the perfect solution
Perhaps you have been lucky in love, but for some people dating is fraught with difficulties and problems. A unique idea has come about in some local libraries, it is called 'Blind Date with a Book'.

blind, date, with, a book, library, reading, fun, unique, idea, meet, people
Hmmmm interesting and without any complications!

The idea is fairly simple, the librarian has selected a range of books and removed the covers from them. They have been labelled with topics such as the romance, murder-mystery, travel or adventure. You can set a time limit  if you like to do speed dating or take your time and peruse various topics.

Once you have selected your chosen topic and picked up your book, you are free to take your 'blind date' home and do with it what you will. Make a cup of tea or coffee and settle in snuggle up on the couch together or perhaps even go to bed together The choice is yours - allow your blind date to take you on a wild adventure somewhere that you may not have chosen on your own.

Blind date with a book is being offered in various locations and libraries around Australia. It originally began as a Valentine's Day idea and many libraries still have this feature available on Valentine's Day, while others are now offering it year round.

Ask your library if they will do a blind date with the book's table.
