The commonly held view these days is that people don't write love letters any more, and that email and text messaging are death to romance.
Audible.co.uk has a different idea Using email, we are delivering love letters for you to send to your Valentine. All you have to do is pick which love letter you'd like sent, and to whom, and we'll deliver it for you in seconds.
We've picked three of the most romantic love letters written by some of the greatest men that ever lived. Each of these letters has been taken from the audiobook Love Letters of Great Men by Ursula Doyle.
The three letters are from:
Robert Browning to Elizabeth Barrett Browning on their wedding day
Ludvig van Beethoven to his 'Immortal Beloved'
Honore de Balzac to Countess Evelina Hanska
I thought it was a really nice way of putting your fellings when you can't think of the right words yourself.
