August is Read a Romance Month

This month I will be reading:

Mallery, Susan. 2009. Hot on her heels. Don Mills, Ont: HQN.

I’m reading this because August is National Read a Romance Month. My sister in law in one of the organizers of this event and had a column about it in the August 1, 2013 web edition of USA Today. Part of the festivities include having 90 romance writers post on why romance matters to them. I think it’s a great way to highlight the genre and promote a discussion on reading and writing in general.

If you live in one of the cities served by Listen Alaska, you can find a number of romance ebooks and audiobooks available for download. Though many of them are checked out and you’d need to place a hold.  Read through the daily posts at National Read a Romance Month if you want some recommendations. You can also check out Library Journal’s Best Romance Books of 2012.  Happy reading!
