by Orson Scott Card
The famous science fiction author, Orson Scott
Card, writes a story of trans-temporal love that involves a modern
Jew, Ivan, and an ancient Russian princess, Katerina, that fight the
evil intentions of the witch Baba Yaga, and unlike Sleeping Beauty
which it emulates, the plot deals with the responsibilities that come
after marriage. An enchanting fairy tale.

Dumbest Dates by Merry Bloch Jones
This book contains short excerpts from some of the dumbest dates in
existence. It's fun to read it all the way through or read each piece one at a
time. Either way, you'll feel normal after hearing what other people go through on
||Romeo and Juliet by
What would a web site about love be without
mentioning this classic tale of inter-family strife, love, romance,
and tragedy. The play about the two "star-crossed
lovers" is as apropos today as it was in the 1600s. New
Folder Library version.
by Banana Yoshimoto
Highly recommended. Two
Japanese girls deal with love, loss, and death in two short stories by the acclaimed
Japanese author. Banana Yoshimoto's deceptively simple writing style will draw you
in immediately, and you won't be able to put it down until the spiritual climax.
