A book tasting is an engaging activity designed to introduce readers to a variety of books and help them discover new titles and genres they might enjoy, rather than being assigned one. Usually, a book tasting resembles the ambiance of a cafe, each table having a book and a menu describing the books genre and summary. Students have a set amount of time to “taste’ the book before rotating tables and sampling a different book. After rotating through all the tables, students get to choose which book caught their attention the most, and take it home to read.
