11 Reasons Books Are Better Valentines Than People

A library card is the only Valentine's Day card you need.

1. There's no bad way to pick up a book.

2. You don't have to get dressed up for a book.

3. A book doesn't need reservations (it can take you anywhere).

4. A book will never stand you up (unless you forget it at home).

5. You don't have to share your wine with a book (spilling doesn't count).

6. You can read numerous books at the same time and nobody judges you.

7. A good book is guaranteed to keep you up all night.

8. You won't get mad at your friend for reading the same book.

9. You don't have to introduce a book to your parents (unless you think they should read it too).

10. If a book makes you cry, it's only because it was so good.

11. When it's all over, you know exactly where to find the next one.
