Blind Date with a Book

Take a chance on a blind date with a book...

Indulge in a fun Valentine’s activity that is as mysterious and adventurous as a blind date, and you could be in to win one of two amazing experiences from Auckland’s own Cordis Hotel.

Every February, Auckland Libraries is one of many libraries around the world offering a range of carefully selected and wrapped books for customers to have a bit of fun experimenting with their reading.

Without knowing the author or title, you choose your blind date read based on a set of clues on the wrapping or attached bookmark. 

Some are fiction, and some are non-fiction. Some are new, and others are tried and true classics. 

Your blind date may be funny, informative, entertaining, scary or heart-breaking, maybe even a little odd. It could lead to a new and surprising, never-would-have-picked-that reading experience. You won’t know until you get it home!   

Blind Date with a Book competition

Every blind date book you borrow gives you the chance to win one of two of the most elegant experiences available in Auckland. The Cordis Hotel has offered these fabulous prizes for Auckland's local libraries.
  • A Romantics night for two. You'll stay in a stylish Deluxe room with late checkout, complimentary valet parking, unlimited movies, plus $100 hotel credits to spend on your choice of dinner, breakfast, minibar or an exquisite High Tea by Cordis. You'll also receive a bottle of sparkling wine and a delicious treat of chocolates and macaroons to make your romantic celebration complete.
  • High Tea for two. Indulge in Cordis Hotel’s signature treat - an array of handcrafted sweets, pastries and scones, all served on elegant fine bone china. A tea sommelier will help you choose the perfect blend to match your tea time treats or you can enjoy a glass of champagne for the ultimate celebration.
An elegant Deluxe Room.
The Lobby Lounge where high tea is served.

To enter, complete the entry card attached to every blind date book you borrow and hand it in at your local library’s desk. By the way, multiple 'dates' are allowed! 

You must be 18 years or older to enter.

Chances to go on a blind date with a book are available from 4 to 24 February. 

They are free and ready to meet you!

The Cordis Hotel (formerly the Langham Hotel) is located at 83 Symonds Street, Auckland.
