Valentine’s Day is day set aside for love. It’s a day to give your main squeeze some flowers, chocolate, or jewelry. Even the right book can tell that special someone how much you care for them.
But, the wrong book could turn this special day to a whirlwind of regret. The Community Bookstore on Seventh Avenue has three suggestions for titles you should avoid getting your beau or broad.
On their Tumblr page, Community Bookstore has created a list of bad Valentine’s Day gifts. Their post reads, “Books that should NEVER be given to anyone as Valentine’s Day gifts.”
So, make sure you don’t buy these books for V-Day:
- “The Days of Abandonment” by Elena Ferrante
- “Tropic of Cancer” by Henry Miller
- “Portnoy’s Complaint” by Philip Roth
