Find some love (stories) this Valentine's Day

This Valentine's Day, it's easy to get in the mood for love by reacquainting yourself with some classic love stories with Google Book Search. Try re-reading the star crossed love affair of Romeo and Juliet, or if you're looking for something more modern, there's always Jay Gatsby's dream of winning over Daisy. Though Pride and Prejudice has been made in to a movie four times now, Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett remain an excellent choice for those inkling for some romantic bickering.

While some have argued that poetry has died, the poetic form has been and is still associated with love and its many expressions. So if you love poetry, you can count the ways Shakespeare wrote sonnets about a summer's day or John Keats composed odes to beauty and truth.

And if you want to show your devilish charm throughout the year, there are plenty of ideas on how you can. Whether you look through old books on love or read the geeky guide to romance (according to The Princess Bride), go ahead and browse whatever your heart desires.
