Enchantment 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.

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 their dates.

Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

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.

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.
