    I would love to do a “blind date with a book”. I am a Library manager (not really a Librarian, I have not been to school for this. I was just in the right place at the right time.) I work at a small Catholic prek – 8 school, so I will have to call it something like Don’t Judge a book by it’s cover, or something similar. I’m not sure what books to pick though for the selection to wrap. Where could I find some suggestions.
