Agorafabulous! Fabulous Valentine’s Day Book Giveaway

     5 Reasons Books Make the Best Valentines

I’ve spent a fair number of Valentine’s Days with gentleman callers, and have even scored a few gifts over the years. Maybe I’m biased because my own book, Agorafabulous!: Dispatches From My Bedroom, comes out on Valentine’s Day this year, but it recently occurred to me that a book would make the best possible present for the most romantic day of the year. Here’s why.

1.)  It’s incredibly sexy. I mean, duh. Is there anything hotter than a guy who reads? How about a guy who reads Pablo Neruda’s love poems, realizes they’re the perfect aphrodisiac, purchases a volume of them, wraps it in pink and red paper and presents it to a swooning lady love?

2.)  It’s incredibly affordable. Diamonds are boring and often come from ethically suspect sources. Chocolate makes you fat and sluggish. Books have the potential to make you smarter, more interesting, fitter, richer, and better in bed! At the very least, a good read will improve your dinner party conversation.

3.)  It lasts forever. Or at least for the rest of your natural life, which is more than I can say for some stinky pile of flowers or some soon-to-be stale red velvet cake.

4.)  It won’t leave you with a headache in the morning. Reading a book is an inherently good choice, and while its content may vary, the book itself can’t make you do crazy things. A bottle of champagne, on the other hand…that’s a different (and potentially far more salacious) story.

5.)  It’ll help you weed out an unsuitable suitor. Two words: “The Fountainhead.” You’re welcome.

Now go forth and get some! (Books, that is.) And a happy, happy Valentine’s Day to you.

  1. What a fun post! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I can think of one more reason a book is better. A book can be shared with your friends and details discussed at length, we really can’t legally do that with a man!

    This sounds like it is going to be a really entertaining book. Can’t wait to read it.


  3. OK, I was going to comment on how funny your post was, then I watched the trailer. Hilarious! You two are a pair and this looks like a really fun book on a difficult subject. Thanks for hosting this event.

  4. Oh, I laughed when I watched the trailer over the Whole Foods, cheese that is spoken to by elves. Book looks like it could be fun, maybe to share as well.

    Best, and keep on blogging.
