I draw the line at romance novels. There's something about romance novels that makes me reflexively gag.
But I can take certain kinds of romance novels. Short stories about love seem to go down more easily than an entire novel about love. I'm especially fond of short story collections that include some bitter love stories. Here are some of those short story collections I like:
Ties that Bind: Stories of Love and Gratitude from the First Ten Years of StoryCorps
My Mistress's Sparrow is Dead: Great Love Stories from Chekhov to Munro
Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Heartbreak
The Lover's Dictionary
Paris, you say? France? Yes, we can read love stories set in France. We can read anything set in France.
Paris in Love
LeRoad Trip: A Traveler's Journal of Love and France
We seem to be able to bear love stories about our animals.
Marley and Me: Life and Love with the World's Worse Dog
The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill: A Love Story...with Wings
And, finally, we can usually tolerate children's picture books about love:
There's No One I Love Like You
How Far Do You Love Me?
