In ‘Other People’s Love Letters: 150 Love Letters You Were Never Meant to See,’ author Bill Shapiro takes a peek into the hearts and minds of various people who were either madly in love or madly out of love when they put pen to paper in an ‘ode to a loved (or formerly loved) one. Filled with heart-melting muse, inspiring notes of adoration, heart-breaking relationship enders and near-obession messages, this quick 12-minute read will not only inspire you to write your honey a love letter, but will bring a few laughs. Read a few excerpts from the book:

• “i think UR great. wanna have wine & Tequila again sometime?”

• “I can’t believe you’re real, and I think about you constantly in some way or the other all day. I haven’t given the finger to anyone driving since I met you.”

• “With you I learned how to fight cleaner, how to talk things out better, and how to make a strong loving family out of nothing. These are priceless gifts that I will carry with me the rest of my life. One more thing you did for me: you left, and I had to get through it.”

• “P.S. I look forward to your letters too much to call. Also, where do you stand on chains?”
