Tired of the same old chocolate and flowers for Valentines Day? This year give your special someone something that will still be consumable come St. Patrick’s Day. Don’t be afraid to give something that could potentially outlast your relationship. To be specific, give her (or him) a book.
Here are a few on my wish list (hint, hint):
Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair by Pablo Neruda. This happens to be the duel language edition for murmuring sweet poetry to me in Spanish.
Snark Handbook by Lawrence Dorfman. Though I manage snark pretty well on my own, a little extra reference can’t hurt anyone.
The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman. Nothing says “I love you” like zombies.
and, why not,
a Kindle. I’ll download the books myself…
I didn’t receive any books for V-day, but he did hunt down a song I kept hearing and commenting on during beer commercials. He also gave me a Curtis Granderson baseball card. I guess he knows me pretty well.
