Don't judge a book by its cover: A gift wrapped Mystery Present!

A Blind Date with a Book is basically a MYSTERY title alluded to by clues on the plain brown paper wrapper.


NOTE: The image is ONLY A SAMPLE of what the item looks like... The clues on the wrapping do NOT refer to the custom choice book you are ordering.

Custom choice: Tell us what you would like (genre, recipient's interests, etc.)

  • In ‘Comments’, give us as much information / details as you can so we can choose the most appropriate title:

-       Is it a gift or is it for you ?

-       Male / Female; Age (if relevant); Children’s book ? ; Fiction / Non-Fiction ; Genres ; Light hearted / Serious ? etc etc.

-       Note: If you buy a Blind Date book in the bookshop and you find it’s a title you already have, we happily give you a full refund credit for it. Unfortunately, it’s too complicated to do that on the website. But it's going to be a good book. So you could always give it to one of your friends as a present and they'll think you're great. ____________________________________________________________________________________________
