The Post About the Rabbit Recommends v.5

Valentine's Edition - love is in the air.

Each weekend, I post a readable, a watchable, and a listenable of which I'm fond. You can choose what happens next. Earlier volumes can be found here.


No one writes unrequited love better than Jane Austen. Her other works get more time in the window, but Persuasion is my favorite. The heroine, Anne Elliot, let love get away (as I may have done in the 3rd grade - where are you Benji?) It's a story of finding it again. The novel doesn't have Austen's classic witty dialogue, but her observational writing will suck you in.


"If he loved you with all the power of his soul for a whole lifetime, he couldn't love you as much as I do in a single day." Shut up. This seems like a book and movie rec in one. But really - stick with the movie. Wuthering Heights is a tough one for even the most talented of readers. To help you narrow your search (there are more than 20 adaptations) - look for the 1939 version with Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon. It's the definitive (The Academy agrees since it received 8 nominations.) I'm not saying you can find it on youtube, but...


I think if you're looking for a delightful Valentine's CD, then I'm going to stand by last week's recommendation of Dave Barnes "You, the Night, and Candlelight." This new version of "Until You" has reduced me to Häagen-Dazs, footie pajamas, and the Hallmark channel. Go here to make it yours.

Your inspirations for love?
