celebrating Valentine’s day by reading books

Whether you feel like celebrating Valentine’s Day or not, it will be hard to withstand the festive mood. We hope you will not stay away from all those hearts and hugs. Instead, plunge into the celebration and give yourself a reason to smile and to treat the person you love the most — yourself. 

Be Curious: Learn about Love 

This bestselling book will change your perception of how people communicate with each other. Gary Chapman’s The 5 Love Languages reveals that some people show their appreciation with gifts, while others — with quality time only. And it is vital that the people who want to invest in a quality relationship (not only romantic) should “speak” the same language. 

As simple as that, this idea will change the way you approach people and how you bond with them. Are you intrigued to know what your language of love is? Take one of the quizzes — it’s fun and illuminating.
