Valentine's Day

It's the day after Valentine's Day, I know, but allow me to suggest some wonderful reading in the spirit of the season, so to speak: "Dogsbody" by Diana Wynne Jones is perhaps the most charming love story of all time. "Sailing to Sarantium" and its sequel, "Lord of Emperors" by Guy Gavriel Kay are some of the best books ever, and the ending to "Lord of Emperors" is both a surprise and a tearjerker. And finally: "I Capture the Castle" by Dodie Smith. "I love. I have loved. I will love."
