Wordsworth Books ALWAYS has something interesting going on. The sponsor author events, have great "bag-o-book" sales and maintain a very strong presence in the community on on social networking.
This idea came up on their Facebook feed today and I think it's a wonderful idea ...
"Blind Date with a Book"
Books wrapped in brown paper with enough of a description to give you a little direction as to whether it would be interesting or not.
It's a great idea in bookstore but I think it could be a really fun idea for an "any occasion" book exchange too.
