Introducing: Did You Know This Book Exists?

Let's face it, there are way too many books to have heard of all of them. The purpose behind DYKTBE? is to introduce you to a random book. Lady Mystery (my "alter personality" for this activity) will do the following steps for each review:

1.Lady Mystery will go to the bookstore
2.Pick a book at random (she's trying to decide if she wants to make her way through the different categories)
3.Take a picture holding the newest DYKTBE book
4.Read the back
5.Read the first page
6.Write a review based on her unscientific findings
7.Include various information about the DYKTBE book in her review
8.Rate the book (star scale) based on absolutely no other information (this might seem preposterous, but we expect those who have read the book to step forward and tell us Lady Mystery is wrong...or right!

Lady Mystery's bookstore

(The store may vary when Lady Mystery goes on vacation or to a city where there is actually more than one bookstore.)


  1. Sounds like fun Lady Mystery. If I've read the book, I'll tell you if I think your star choice is right on.
    It will be interesting to see how much we are influenced by the cover and blurb on the back of a fiction book.

  2. Lady Mystery is hot.

    What bookstore does she go to??
