Another Blind Date with a Book: King Street Newtown, Sydney

A timber stand on a footpath by a doorway, with parked cars in the background. The stand has four narrow shelves, and each shelf holds books facing outwards, wrapped in brown paper and tied with string. The top three shelves have four books each, and the bottom shelf has two. Key phrases about each book are written on the front, like ‘Career driven vet’, ‘A June Wedding’, ‘Backstreets of Whitechapel’ and ‘War-ravaged Colonel’. A chalkboard above the stand says: ‘Blind Date with a Book!’ with a heart beside it. A “sticker beneath that says: ‘Worried you may have read it? Just bring it back (with the wrapper and receipt) and exchange for another.
