Ten top books for Valentine's Day gifts

Last year at the Christian Science Monitor, Marjorie Kehe came up with a list of ten perfect books for Valentine's Day gifts.

One title on the list:
Love Is a Mix Tape, by Rob Sheffield

You don't have to be a music head to appreciate this 1990s-era love story by Rolling Stone critic Rob Sheffield. Love Is a Mix Tape uses 22 "mix tapes" to tell the story of the courtship and marriage of the socially awkward Rob and the way-cool Renee. The story works its way on through Renee's early death, but the tragedy of loss is just one piece of this warm and rich story of a true meeting of soulmates.
Read about another book on the list.
