Love Letters That Are Sweeter, More Awkward Than Your Own

Have you ever written a love letter? Unless you count the occasionally cheesy emails we send a certain Frisky boyfriend from time to time (“If I come home and the dishes are done, you may just get a blow job!), we’ve only written one real love letter, but we never actually delivered it to its intended recipient. Lucky for us, it didn’t end up in a book! But a whole bunch of others did in the new book Other People’s Love Letters, which is filled with hundreds of real love letters sent over the decades compiled by editor Bill Shapiro. Some are scrawled on bar napkins or childlike doodles, while others are lengthy email odes. Our favorite is the third grade-inspired letter in which the recipient was given multiple choice answer possibilities. Adorable! [Other People’s Love Letters]
