Love this idea to teach kids giving a book a chance.  "Blind Date with a Book"  Activity for independent reading.  Wrap up books and decorate with key words that relate to each.  Students pick a book, unwrap it, record it and read for 30 pages.  Good date=keep it, finish it, review it.  Bad date=return it, and write about why it wasn't the book for you.  Great "get to know yourself as a reader" activity!  I am SO doing this! by juliana
