Book Blind Date

It’s been a while since my last segment as I was hoping to leave you with some nice alone time with your book. But love is, after all, a fickle thing and perhaps you are again on the search for a great night out (or in).

Below are four eligible and mysterious book-bachelors.  If one interests you, just scroll down and go ahead and check it out (in more ways than one perhaps).

Please check out Blind Date with a Book round one and two for more enjoyable reads.
