My Fair Book Date

Just signed up for My Fair Book Date, hosted by Down the Rabbit Hole & Books!!!!!!!!!. It's a great idea and sounds like a fun way to tackle that humongous TBR pile! As Amber explains:

Looking for that perfect read for February but have no idea what to read in that HUGE to be read pile? Why not let someone choose your perfect match for you?

When you sign up, you will become matchmaker to someone and will also be set up with a matchmaker of your own!

As a matchmaker, you will research from the list of books provided for you on the form and pick out your perfect match by checking up on reviews and/or recommending one that you read and loved from the list! Then, you will send us your book choice to set up your friend on a blind date with and a short description as to why you choose that match for them. You'll also provide a short paragraph as to why you choose that book for your friend which will be used later. The catch is that your friend won't know it's you till the end of the month!

Your secret matchmaker will pick a book and we'll email you with the title. Then you'll go on a blind date with that book through the entire month of February. At the end of the month, you'll fill out a survey rating your date (it will be about 10 questions) to see if your matchmaker did a good job. We'll send over the identity of your matchmaker and the reason why they choose your match to include in your post.

Then you link up your survey and are entered into a giveaway where two random picks will win a book of their choice from The Book Depository!

*Sign-ups will be open until February 4th and you will receive the information for your matchmaking February 5th.*

Sound like fun? Then head over to Down the Rabbit Hole or Books!!!!!!!!! to sign up today!


  1. Wow, that sounds like an awesome meme! Wish I could participle but I'm so busy this month with other deadlines. I'll be looking forward to seeing what book someone else has picked for you!

  2. Something different to consider, this sounds like a great idea, I'd love to join in the fun but feel I'm already too committed as it is. Good luck though, I look forward to hearing all about your date.

  3. Sounds like a lot of fun but I have to echo Petty Witter...I've too many commitments right now to join. Looking forward to your exploits though! ^_^

  4. Love this idea! I'm not up-to-date with most series outside of YA though, so I'll be sitting it out. But have fun! :D
