* The Procrastinator: buys roses and chocolates at a roadside stand on the way home from work on February 14. But not to worry, the company’s eBooks are available within a few hours even on the Day of Love.

* The Overachiever: Chocolates-check! Roses-check! Candles-check! Fancy undies-check! Um, anything else? After all, it’s already January 25. That buys enough time to get a lovely hardback romance novel with a photo of you two on the front cover.

“Over the years,” says Newbern, “our books have been called the ‘Ultimate Vanity Valentine,’ and we’ve been called ‘Computerized Cupids.’ We love that job title.”
