This would be such an awesome lesson! Around valentines day, have students pick out a blind date with a book and then present their blind date to the class on Valentines Day! Still celebrating, but also learning.  *UPDATE* Actually did this with my 7th grade students this last semester and they had a BLAST! What a great way to get students reading!

Tumblr user alethiosaur is a librarian who introduced her local library to "Blind Date With A Book". |  Ran an idea like this as a program -- blind speed date w/ a book -- kids loved it! Could do again and fits "Beneath the Surface" theme!

Blind Date with a Book. This isn't a new idea, but I love the blackboard fonts and look of the display text.
