In these difficult economic times, people are reading more romance novels. Why not spend a little time reading about someone else’s tribulations and triumphs (often in exotic locales)? If you’re already a romance reader, check out your favorite publisher’s web site, such as Avon or Harlequin (which also includes Silhouette). You can buy books, larger print books, audiobooks or ebooks or find titles to check out from the library. You can read books online, read information about authors, read blogs, or participate in reader forums. If you’re a budding writer, you can get writing tips or maybe even critiques of your writing. If you’re not a romance reader, there are so many categories, maybe there’s one for you. Here are some of the categories from the Harlequin web site: African-American, Spanish-language, Mystery, Suspense & Adventure, Paranormal, Contemporary Romance, Historical Fiction, Tender Romance, Inspirational, Young Adult, and Christmas Books.
