Deepings Library tells readers: Don’t judge a book by its cover

Have your say

A library is out to prove the age old saying that you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover.

Deepings Library is asking library users if they’re brave enough to choose a book wrapped in plain paper and identified only by its opening sentence.

If so, that’s exactly what the library is doing with a selection of print and audio books.

The aim is for bookworms to discover a new author or read a book that they might never have found otherwise.

Try out one of these, for instance; ‘It was in the first week of January when Tamsin Hayes decided to kill her husband’ or; ‘”What now?” said the man at the end of the dark carriage corridor’. Who? What? Why?

Find out for yourself and take a blind date with a new literary experience.

The blind date books are available free to all library users.
