My Favorite Non-Romantic Books

As we all know, yesterday was Valentine's Day. I think I will always maintain that Valentine's Day is a fake holiday. Yes, I know that technically all holidays are "fake" in the sense that their creation and perpetuation are made up by the human mind, but in my opinion, Valentine's Day is one of the most fake of them all. Hallmark and candy companies conspired to sell heart-shaped chocolates and sappy cards. It's purely marketing. So, against the usual romantic tendencies that spring up around this time of year, I'm here to recommend some of my favorite books that are distinctly non-romantic.
