There was no leisure perusing. They rifled through the books, determining their picks by series and number. They would bring their piles of Loveswepts, Harlequins and Silhouettes to the counter, either buying them for a dollar each, or trading in the books they got the week before, two for one. Other readers would head to the longer romance novels to discover books by their favorite authors they had not yet read. If those were unavailable, the selections were definitely made by judging the cover.
Some liked the covers with burly, bare-chested men embracing the female protagonist, others stuck to the covers with flowers or soft pink and purple abstract designs. Whatever the covers or the wordcount, the vast majority of books that left the shop each day were in the romance genre.
I shouldn't have been surprised. Romance fans are voracious readers, finishing more than one book a week.
Some of my customers were reading more than one a day! A romance novel, by definition, is a book in which the central storyline revolves around a man and a woman in which there is a "guaranteed happy ending, the establishment of a lifetime commitment between one man and one woman.
The genre is split up into a large number of sub-genres that range from historical to science fiction and fantasy, with romantic scenes that range from steamily erotic to the more old-fashioned romances that even my mother could read without blushing. Romance readers, more than possibly any other genre, have truly embraced ebooks and digital reading.
