what are some teen romance novels similar to The Notebook?

Asked By: Anonymous
I looked into other Nicholas Sparks novels and found Dear John, A Walk To Remember, and The Last Song but I've read those already. Then most of his other books were about adults, which tends to bore me probably because I like reading about people close to my age. So if there are any good teen romance novels you know of please tell me. (please no vampires or any mythical creatures, I have already read Twilight, stick to the normal human stories please). thanks =]

Searching for old Shakespeare textbook - Complete Works Annotated - Pre-1961?

Asked By: fragileindustries
My mother took a college course in 1961 on Shakespeare and lost the textbook in a fire. I would like to find a copy as a gift to her. It was a hardcover single volume of all works, plays and sonnets, with annotations (clarification of archaic words, critical notes etc.) The original publication date / first edition was obviously before 1961-- this may have been a subsequent edition and it may have had later editions, but it was in print in 1961. I cannot find an online bibliography of similar works. Any scholars/Shakespeare lovers/book collectors who know such a work or a helpful link? Thank you.
