The first thing to do is establish what kind of book you want to read? Is it going to be an autobiography of a celebrity who has made his/her mark in the world or will you go for a light love story that helps the romantic mood around your place? If you can’t make up your mind about that, it would help to go online and read reviews or get some feedback from your partner (if the book is not a surprise).
If you have selected a book or books, you can buy them online as well as offline.
If you are planning to buy them online, then there are some reliable online book stores that you can refer to. These have a large collection of books in categories like, “Photography,” “Romance,” “Suspense,” etc. Amazon and Tesco are two examples of such online stores.
If that doesn’t look like an option which you would go with, try visiting book stores that are near where you live. Although, the process may be a little more time-consuming than buying books online, you can take your sweetheart with you and both of you can pick up books that you may like. This will give you an excuse to spend time together and may even help in working out any differences that you two may have had lately. Besides, as they say, “Retail therapy is the best therapy!”
