Blind Date with a Book

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, February 14, 2024
To celebrate Valentine's Day the library wrapped books in red paper, wrote a description and the barcode on the front, and offered them for checkout sight unseen. A blind date with a book!
What book lover could resist? Not me!

I unwrapped it this morning - "Bittersweet" by Colleen McCullough. Set in Australia in the early 1900s, it is a story about four sisters as each one follows her dreams and ambitions. Sounds good to me!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I am linking in today with My Corner of the World

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

"Know ye that the Lord he is God; it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful unto Him and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endures to all generations" Psalm 100:3-5


  1. The book sounds interesting, the wrapped book is a great idea! Take care, have a wonderful day!

  2. I've enjoyed every McCullough book I've read, although I haven't read this one. Happy reading and happy Valentine's Day!
