Recession-Proof Romance!

The Today Show is reporting what we already knew! Romance readers are pushing book sales to new heights. Down about the economy? Trouble at work? Have to cuddle up with your honey on the couch rather than go out to dinner and a movie? A $6.99 mass market paperback can serve as a sweet (albeit temporary) escape. Watch the video below to find out how romance is dominating the publishing scene.
Also, dont' forget to check out our own Dakota Cassidy's book, THE ACCIDENTAL HUMAN, in it's television debut on the bookshelf over the woman's shoulder. Don't blink! You'll miss it!

It's great news to hear how Romance is selling better than ever. No surprise, I guess, as reading a great book can be a constant in your life regardless of economic factors.

To all the authors - keep on writing! To all the readers - immerse yourself!

From what I've seen, people are taking to reading more and more lately and I don't think it's totally economics driven. That's a good thing! Books are so very important to people of all ages. They teach children about the world they live in, they allow adults a break from the pressures of the real world and they keep the mind active for the elderly. They're wonderful medicine, no matter what the genre.
