This was an article I wrote for the Australian Romance Readers Association (ARRA) newsletter last year. It’s Get Reading! month again, so I thought it would be appropriate to repost it.
If youve been book shopping recently, you may have noticed signs promoting the Books Alive campaign. Visit a participating bookshop before September 30 and you can pick up a free reading guide called 50 Books You Cant Put Down.
Ill be honest. I find it difficult to get excited about most of the books in the guide. Were not likely to find Stephanie Laurens or Anna Campbell on the list, let alone the many Australian romance authors who write category novels or who are primarily e-published.
So whats a romance reader to do? The good news is that there are romances listedeven if its not easy to spot them!
