Happy Valentine's Day

by Saralyn Richard


Today is Valentine’s Day, and I hope you are spending the holiday enjoying the people, places, and things you love most. As for me, I can't help thinking of my most cherished Valentine's Day gifts over the years--you guessed it--books.

Unlike the more traditional Valentine's Day gifts, books don't die in five days. They don't increase the numbers when you step on the scale. They don't break or go out of style.

Instead, they provide hours of entertainment, improve the mind and spirit, offer topics for discussion, and connect readers. Also, purchasing books stimulates the economy, because so many different industries are involved in the creation, production, and selling of books.

Romances aren’t the only appropriate Valentine’s Day books. Most mysteries also include love in their plots, sometimes as motives. Whatever your genre, take yourself on a love-ly journey of the heart, and snuggle up with a great book!

Not ready to commit to a deep relationship? How about having a blind date with a good book? You might just fall in love!
