  3. 3. Speed Dating Dos and Don’ts  Once the 3-minute reading time starts, focus only on the ―date‖ you chose.  If you don’t find a match, keep looking. We’ll have some time to check out from the whole library at the end.  Found a book you like? Keep it with you while you scope out the other books. You never know when you might find one you like better…  Be respectful to your date and the dates of others.  Do not change books once the 3-minutes starts.  Do not try to read someone else’s book once the 3-minutes starts.  Focus on your date! It’s only three minutes…  Do not talk during the 3-minute reading time.
