    Have your eyes glazed over from browsing the infinite varieties of chocolates and bouquets to give your Valentine this year? Not that we’ve got anything against sweets and flowers, but it can be tough to say something genuine to the ones we love or covet with such an overplayed gesture.

    Instead, why not gift your squeeze a great book? It’ll last longer, it won't wilt (unless it's purposeful), and it can be consumed guilt-free.

You’ll find something fun, romantic, and thought-provoking for every type of reader. In fact, why not read the book together and have a cozy book club? Heck — throw in a little chocolate, too.
