Mystery book swap

So here’s another idea we’re pinching from t’interweb; blind dates with books. Love it.

If you’re coming along to our next soup (10 November, Southend), here’s what to do:

  • Take one pre-loved book. One of your own that you can bear to part with, or one chosen from a charity shop.
  • Wrap in plain (or fancy, if you prefer) paper.
  • Write a few clues on the cover – eg genre and one or two key plot points (enough to intrigue, but don’t give too much away!)
  • Bring book to Soup and place on Book Blind Date table.
  • Take a book from the Book Blind Date table.
  • Unwrap, make appropriate sound of exclamation, take home and enjoy.
  • At the next soup, you’ll have one more thing to chat about – what you thought of your Blind Date.

Simples!

Simon Wallace, from Southend Libraries, has kindly offered to bring along some mystery ‘Quick Reads’ to add to the selection.
