I had initially resisted the urge to comment at the Cafe about a recent article from a Utah-based website that suggested an addiction to reading romance novels equated an addiction to pornography. Having read so many books over the years – including many available at All Romance during the erotic romance eBook boom – I feel I am able to tell the difference between sensuality, eroticism, and a high-charged, thinly-plotted free for all.
Addicted? Hmmm, not sure. Addiction implies one will stop at nothing to get that which one craves, and though I am a voracious reader I haven’t had to resort to selling blood to get my fix. However, All Romance makes it so easy to buy books that I might as well be an addict.
Anyway, if you wish to opine on the #RomanceKills debate happening online, you can check out what Smart Bitches has to say on the subject. If you ask me, though, I think it’s a conspiracy set up by cell phones so you’ll forget they might make you sick.
So long as my Sony reader isn’t lethal, I’m good.
