When you think romance, usually Valentine’s Day comes to mind. But there is another month that readers of romance books should keep in mind. August is Read a Romance Month – a time for readers of romance to celebrate the genre.
Read-A-Romance Month was conceived and launched in 2013 by freelance writer and romance advocate Bobbi Dumas after she realized there was no one place where the community celebrated romance all together, at one time, in a concentrated way. She says she picked August was chosen because summer reading tends to be lighter fare, and even eclectic readers tend to pick up more romance.
“Why Read-A-Romance MONTH?! I read romance every day!”
Don’t worry. Think of it more as the month when we come together to CELEBRATE romance! A time when readers and writers can come together and celebrate this joyful, awesome genre.
Fantasy, contemporary, historical and more, it doesn’t matter the subgenre. We all need a little romance in our life. Grab a romance and open the page. It’s Read A Romance Month.
