Everything Romance By David Borton and Tom Winters
Everything Romance, by Davide Borton and Tom Winters, is just what the title says EVERYTHING Romance! The book is chock full of romance in several forms. There are short love stories. There are quotes on love. There are romantic love poems. There are romance-inspired recipes such as "Love Apple" And Basil Soup, "You Bet I Love You" Chocolate-Covered Strawberries, and Cuddle-On-The-Couch Cinnamon-Sugar Popcorn that are sure to give you and your love warm fuzzy feelings. The book also contains some gift ideas from the heart for the one you love. Scattered throughout the book there are also helpful tips called Love Boosters and Love Busters. Love Boosters are things you can do or say that would be beneficial to your marriage. The Love Busters are the opposite of the Boosters and would not be beneficial to your marriage (although we've probably all said or done those things and had to learn the hard way!) There are also many sections of this book that tell the reader facts about marriage, traditions, and historical account of love. I particularly enjoyed the story of the evolution of the mistletoe...I've always wondered about how that tradition was started! My favorite sections of the book were the Date Night Idea sections. The book lists different ideas for themed date nights for those of us who are creatively-challenged!
This book is not one that you would sit down and read from cover to cover, but rather a book in which you pick it up from time to time to inspire you in how to be more romantic. This would make a great gift book for a bridal shower or wedding, or even as a Valentine's Day gift to your loved one, or even to yourself so you can, in turn, give the gift of more romance to your spouse!
