Recommending "Wired Love: A Romance of Dots and Dashes" by Ella Cheever Thayer. It's a romance novel from the 19th century about a telegraph operator who falls in love with another telegraph operator.

It's not the type of book that usually gets read here, but I'm recommending it anyway, if for no other reason than because it's very much a 19th century version of the "love on the internet " story, and it deals with stuff like the question of whether an electronic relationship is the same as an in person one, catfishing, and a whole lot of other stuff that seems remarkably current.
