Uma Gets Romantic with Books

Stuck for what to buy your love for Valentine's Day?  Of course I'm going to say "A book".  So did Umapagan Ampikaipakan on his book show on BFM 89.9.  The titles he suggested :

South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami
Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
The History of Love by Nichola Krauss
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Here's why :



(More suggestions for Valentine reading, archived on this blog.)

Also on BFM this week -  Shazmin Shamsuddin  interviewed Chinese Stories in Times of Change author David T. K. Wong, so if you missed the talk the other day at CHAI, you should enjoy this.

Read the last two. History of Love is rather depressing, Outlander is time-travel romance, if you don't mind extending the reading over the series. Happy CNY and VDay celebrations Sharon!
