There are few things as good as getting your mitts on a great new book. The masterfully crafted parallel world, companionship on dull journeys and rapture on those rainy evenings, curled up in bed with a cup of tea and your book of choice are a wonderful thing, and it’s always disappointing when you start a new book and it doesn’t live up to these lofty expectations.
New Berlin based community Bookflanuer.me is a project which aims to set up ongoing ‘blind dates’ between people and books across the city. By following them on their Twitter account you can receive clues on the genre and location of the books they will be sending on ‘dates’, dispatched in locations all over Berlin. If my current reading list wasn’t so long I’d get involved straight away – a date with a book surely can’t be as unfortunate as some of the dates I’ve had in real life.
