Blind Dating...with Books???
The Month of Love is upon us and we're inviting you to go on a blind date...with a new book! Our staff, including Bookie Larry, have selected several hidden gems in the store, wrapped them, and provided just a little information on the attached tags.  
 
The display for BOOK BLIND DATING is at the front of our store and we invite you to take a few minutes to browse the tags and choose an intriguing 'date'. Who knows? You may discover an unexpected treasure in a book that would not ordinarily catch your eye. 

Don't worry, if you open a book you already have or decide the treasure is really fool's gold, our return policy applies to these as well.  
 
Happy dating!

Marie Benedict
Hedy Lamarr's story is so much more than any you could believe. This novel takes portions of her real life and mixes them with flair to give us as brilliant a picture as we can have of this actress/scientist/Nazi infiltrator/fighter. From the writer of THE OTHER EINSTEIN, this book is not to be missed.
