Neighbors Growing Together | Aug 28, 2014

At the Library

By Jenisa Hanson, Washington Public Library | Mar 17, 2014

The results are in!

Did your “Blind Date with a Book” sweep you off of your feet? Was it love at first sight or a total dud? Well, the results are in.

These books will sweep you off your feet:

Between Shades of Grey, A Northern Light, Bel Canto, My Sister's Keeper, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Shoemakers Wife, Death Chocolate, How Close We Come, The Perfect Storm, A Walk in the Woods, Under this Broken Sky, Der John, and The Salt House.

These Books were so-so:

McNally’s Secret, Into Thin Air, The Language of Flowers, Rain Water, Room, The Meryl Streep Movie Club, and At First Sight.

These books will not be asked on a second date:

The Three Wissemanns, Get Real, and Amish Grace.

If you didn’t get a chance to participate in “Blind Date with a Book,” it’s never too late to take a chance on one of these books. You can decide for yourself if the book will sweep you off your feet or is a total dud.
