Here's how it works:
There are sets of challenges (see below) in which each of you will have a certain amount of time to find books, magazines, etc. which provide the information you are looking for. The sets break it up so you don't have a gazillion books in hand when you finally meet to share what you found with your date. This way, you get to do a set of challenges, meet up to share, return those books, then go back out for the next set of challenges.
After each set, meet up in the comfy couch area where you will take turns sharing what you found for your challenges. Try to learn something new about that person (even if you've been married for 20 years!) Talk about each challenge and why you picked what you did (tell memories of it if applicable). Try to choose the least-busy night at that store so you will have free reign of the lounge area.
You can use this as a guide:

If you decide to forgo Set Four, don't forgo the Starbucks in the bookstore! Grab a hot chocolate and a pastry as you sit on the couch and talk about all the things you discovered about each other during the date.

PS - thanks for all your comments on my MIA post. I appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers. My family is doing well and we had enjoyable time together, celebrating the life of my grandpa. I'm going to be a little slow on posts the rest of the week...haven't had time to prepare any! So, make sure you become a follower if you haven't already to receive noticed when I post next (I anticipate it will be Saturday for a special Saturday Spotlight!)
