Romance for book-lovers

Here’s another great idea for giving a dusty, old book a new lease on life.

Step One: Find someone you want to marry.

Step Two: Find a hard-cover book that is rarely used and largely considered “boring” or uninteresting (a soft-cover book might work, but it’s not really recommended).

Step Three: Carve a big square out of the centre of each page of most of the book.

Step Four: Buy a beautiful engagement ring that will cause your favorite person in the whole world to swoon and wear a perma-smile for days.

Step Five: Cut a slit in the pages above the square you cut in Step Three.

Step Six: Thread a lovely satin ribbon through the slit from Step Five, put the ring from Step Four on the ribbon, and tie it so that the ring hangs in the square cut in Step Three.

Step Seven: Write the words, “Will you marry me?” under the ring.

Step Eight: Step back, enjoy your handiwork and pat yourself on the back. You are a book-lover’s Casanova. In other words, Irresistible! A “yes” is guaranteed.
