#BookbedBlindDates: Bookbed’s book exchange

The idea of hosting book exchanges came up during our very first meeting (!) in June 2014—way before this community even existed. This year, we finally decided to do it! Inspired by a photo we found years ago on Tumblr), we hosted our very first #BookbedBlindDates!

The mechanics are pretty simple: Dress up a book and put it up for a date. (For this round, we didn’t do it face-to-face and mailed it to one another instead.)

Here are a couple of links to the #BookbedBlindDates experience:

Thanks to everyone who made the book exchange a wonderful experience. Until next time! ☁
