Book Hunters in Brief #61: Fifty Shades of Grey

Ask ten random people what love is and you'll get some long awkward pauses before you get ten different answers. That is probably why so many of us spend so much of our lives looking for it. How are we supposed to find something when we can't say exactly what it is? It's like telling someone who has never seen a hippopotamus to find one in a pitch dark walk-in closet. He's going to bump into it quite a few times before he figures out that the big, smelly thing is what he's been looking for.

Who knows? In the end, it might make more sense to just sit where you are and let love find you

While you're waiting, here are a some books, courtesy of your friendly neighborhood Book Hunters, written by people who have a good idea of what love looks like, at least in its fictional guise.

Bared to You by Sylvia Day

Kushiel’s Dart by Jacqueline Carey

Gabriel’s Inferno by Sylvain Reynard

Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D. H. Lawrence

Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas

Release Me by J. Kenner

Well, come to think of it, if love really is the fickle and flighty thing people say it is, we might be waiting here awhile. I suggest that we pay a visit to the Book Hunters for some more reading recommendations...you know...just in case.

For the lucky ones who will be spending February 14 with their one-and-onlies, the Book Hunters say count your lucky stars and have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
