Monday Discussion: Valentine's Day Reading
Love is in the air this time of year. Today, I want to ask you all what your favorite Valentine's Day reading would include.
Some of you may choose a romance, while others want something as far away from a love story as possible. Others may prefer a great romantic movie. Or something complately different that I have not thought of.
But that's the point of this discussion, to bring different people together to pool their opinions, likes, and dislikes so that we all can benefit from the breadth of information. Besides, you hear only what I think every other day of the week.
So, in a perfect world, what story would you choose to enjoy as we approach Valentine's Day?
I won't have time to read it before Valentine's Day, but the holiday has jogged my memory and I am adding it to my holds list right now. I will pop the film in the DVD player at some point this weekend and gather the family around since we all like it. That sounds like a wonderful way to both enjoy a romantic story and my most precious loved ones.
Now it's your turn. Share some of your all time favorite romance books, movies, plays, etc... anything.
