Lusty romance in the recession

All my romance book blogs have reported on this extensively, and my blogger friends (and real life ones too [yes i have those])) have been faboosh about sending me these links as well. In case you missed it:

Romance Novels Are Having the Best Week Ever!

Ok well maybe not week, but I love that show.

Because I have no idea how to upload a video into a blog post I’m gonna just copy and paste this dirty, messy, long link and not clean it up or even make it tiny:

http://abcnews.go.com/video/playerIndex?id=7329822

That is a video of ABC News Nightline’s segment on the fabulosity of romance novels, and how they’re selling like hotcakes (hot bods?), better than any other genre in the bookish world.

I don’t care if it’s a recession or not, I ALWAYS want a happy ending, but in this New York Times article (among others), that seems to be the main conjecture as to why their sales are still going strong. I guess like how more babies are conceived in the winter cuz there is nothing else to do? Does that even make sense as a comparison? Why am I still talking?

I’m going to let these articles do the talking for me.

Also if you want to see Paul Rudd reading the lusty bits aloud: you’re welcome.

Also you are welcome for exposing your corneas this:
