UPDATE: Some great entries so far!! I guess it probably would’ve made sense to set some deadlines and such, huh? We’ll keep collecting entries till Friday at noon, and then Rachel will announce the winners that afternoon. Keep ’em coming!
Now normally Valentine’s Day is not my thing—in high school I established a cabinet for when I take over the world specifically to delete 2/14 from the calendar—but when Rachel sent me this adorable video, my icy cold heart melted just a bit.
Via Word Brooklyn, Rachel’s favorite bookstore, via Riverhead, comes this video from LA’s Skylight Books of books that are totally gettin’ it on throughout the store. It’s charming and adorable. (Except that dead Steve Jobs should probably not be participating in spin the bottle. That’s sort of icky.)
But it made me wonder about what kinds of books actually would love each other. Fortunately, Rachel helped me brainstorm some ideas:
The Great Gatsby would be all about Emma. Lord of the Flies and The Hunger Games would go steady for sure, until their romance ended tragically and prematurely. Animal Farm and Charlotte’s Web could be a good couple since opposites attract. And I could see a strong future for The Imperfectionists and Then We Came to the End, as long as one or the other managed to win the lottery so they didn’t have to bicker about how to pay the rent.
Which books do you think should hook up this Valentine’s Day? Rachel and I will each select a favorite entry from the comments below to receive a DGLM mug!
