You there! I see you! Step out of the shadows! Gone are the days where we have to hang our heads in shame. No longer should you hide that book cover on the metro, or use your guilty pleasure as a sole excuse to buy a Kindle. I put this call out to my brothers and sisters! It’s time to start a revolution! It’s time to claim our place! It’s the age… of the romance novel!
