Who says you have to buy chocolate for your Valentine? We think books are as romantic as diamonds! Grab a copy of Pride & Prejudice for your crush and watch them swoon. The Time Traveler's Wife says "I love you" better than champagne. And we would certainly fall head over heels for the person who picked up Pablo Neruda's Love Poems. If you're looking for a romantic read beyond Fifty Shades of Gray, stop by for some excellent suggestions. We love classics, cookbooks, and contemporary love stories!
"It demonstrates Levithan's talent for empathy, which is paired in the best parts of the book with a persuasive optimism about the odds for happiness and for true love." --New York Times Book Review
"This novel has humor, romance, a touch of suspense, but most of all love--love of books and bookish people and, really, all of humanity in its imperfect glory." --Eowyn Ivey, author of "The Snow Child"
"An engrossing picaresque quest, a love story, and a moving character study . . . [Karen] Lord is on a par with Ursula K. Le Guin."--The Guardian

Newly married couples and empty-nesters will be particularly enthralled with this miniature dessert guide. To everyone who lives alone: now you can have your own personal-sized cake and eat it, too!
