Valentine’s Display (sort of)

Valentine’s Day isn’t all roses and chocolates for a lot of people. Which is probably why I love this display from The Book Table in Oak Park, IL.

Named “St. Valentine’s Day Massacre: Tales of Love Gone Awry,” the display features titles that… well, don’t expect to see them on the Chick Lit reading list. Here’s a sample of titles:

  • 13 of the Worst Breakups in History
  • The End of Alice
  • We Were Liars
  • Gone Girl
  • Someone Please Have Sex with Me

The display was a group effort, says store manager Javier Ramirez. And many of the staff recommendations are complemented with shelf-talkers, which is helpful… because I kind of want to send them some chocolate.
