books to fall in love with

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there’s no better time to fall in love with some new books. By now, you should know I will take any excuse with me to the local bookstore!

If you haven’t yet had a chance to read my review of Susan Holbrook’s latest gem, Joy Is So Exhausting, now’s the time. I fell in love with this book; you will too. Read the review at Northern Poetry Review and then visit Powell’s Books to make a purchase.

I highly recommend visiting Tightrope Books to see all the exciting new titles in their Spring 2010 catalogue.

Share some love with your local indie bookstore this weekend. If stuck at home in an unusual amount of snow, read about some passionate and determined indie shop owners in the new interview series at Poets & Writers.

I also have to share this super duper Valentine’s Special from Tupelo Press:

Send a literary Valentine to someone you love, or treat yourself to a pair of books for half the price!

During the month of February, visit our website and Buy-One-Get-One-Free on any of these six titles celebrating the beauty of love, ardor, dance, and ecstasy.

You can also forward this special offer to your loved ones.

Think of it as a Valentine from us!

It’s easy to love a book and they most often will love you back. So will the authors you support.
