Valentine’s Day is this Sunday. Last year my husband and I were not together – so I wasn’t that excited, it was just another day that he had missed on his 10-month deployment. We will be celebrating this year tougher – and though we aren’t planning anything romantic, we are taking a trip with our daughter to NYC. We’re all excited – though not excited about the chilly weather forecasted for the weekend.
Last year our library hosted a Valentine’s Day special they called Blind Date With a Book. I picked out my “date”, based on a brief description of the book on it’s cover. Even though I didn’t like the book I had a “date” with, I thought it was super fun. This year, the library is doing it again. I picked up my “date” just a few days ago. Specially – wrapped books, which hide their covers, each with a cute description of what lay inside the package. There were many to choose from, all decked out in hearts.
The one I picked out this year was described as chick lit, made into a movie, romance, and fiction. So, ready to find out what this book was, I opened it up and was slightly disappointed. I have already read it – and may have to go back to the library for another “date”! With the book I picked last year, I was promised something like Briget Jones – and it was something I just couldn’t read. This year I actually got Miss Jones, and I don’t think I’ll be reading this one either.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Hope yours is much more exciting than mine is!! Don’t have a date? You can always find a good book!
