Who Wants A Blind Date With A Book?

Last fall, my cousin and I went to the Festival of Books and Authors in Downtown Winston Salem, and I fell in love with Bookmarks. Part independent bookstore, part magical wonderland, the place is amazing.

Right now, in the time of COVID-19 and the shutdown of every non-essential business in the state, independent bookstores are hurting. All of publishing is, and I want to help in anyway I can. I recently ordered a couple of books from their online website, and the Bookmarks staff were so incredibly nice.

See this sign? It was outside of Bookmarks when I was there last September. Eerie, almost. Isn’t it?

It gave me an idea. One of the greatest parts of Bookmarks is their Blind Date with A Book wall. Craft paper wrapped books with bullet points of information, but no title. You pick one, pay for it, and enjoy your new blind date.

So, what I want to do is recreate this experience. The first ten people to fill out the following information in the message section of my CONTACT form will receive a book hand-selected by me and sent to their address directly from Bookmarks.

P.S. I would LOVE to do this with KidLit, so if there is a child in your life who could use a picture book, middle grade, or YA novel, feel free to submit their information here!

Here’s what I need to know:

  • Favorite Genre:
  • Favorite Authors:
  • Any Books You’ve Enjoyed Recently:
  • Any other categories, tropes, or interests you have in regards the book you’d like to receive.
  • And, if you’re filling out the form for a child, please let me know their age/reading level.

Happy reading!
