Book Speed Dating
“Book Speed Dating” is a program for adults who are interested in exploring different genres that they may not be used to reading. There will be tables set up with books next to a framed “pick up line,” e.g. “Did you fall from heaven? Because you look like an angel” or “If I could rearrange the alphabet, I would put ‘U’ and ‘I’ together.” There will be 30 books set up. Participants will go to each table and have 3 minutes with 3 books before a bell rings and they have to move onto the next book. Each participant will be given a score sheet at the beginning of the activity so they can keep track of their likes and dislikes. At the end, if the participant found a book they love, they get a Hershey Kiss. If they did not find a book they love, they get a warhead.
