How many of us want to take a luxury cruise to the Bahamas, or even a not-so-luxurious trip to any breathtakingly romantic spot in the world in search of hot romance? I certainly can’t afford to drop everything for a week, fly to Florida, then take a cruise into the fairytale world of steamy nights and sunny days aboard a luxurious floating hotel. Besides…there’s no real guarantee that you will find romance even if you do go. So why spend well over a thousand bucks and risk a sunburn to boot, when you can find hot, sexy romance (at a far better price) right at your fingertips on your computer or at your local Salt Lake City area bookseller?
Of course, some folks want a cruise…so they buy a cruise. But if you are seeking romance that is a sure thing, try purchasing an inexpensive e-book, or a print books for a bit more, and kick back in the privacy of your home and enjoy.
There are many wonderful e-publishers who sell delicious, hot, kinky, or just plain sweet romance. There are many big publishing houses who publish the same delicious variety in print. I prefer e-books, because they are instant gratification. I don’t have to get dressed up and head for the mall bookstore, and I don’t have to park my car, fight my way through crowds, and wait in line to buy that new best-seller. And I don’t have to wait for the package to arrive if I buy a print book online at any of the fine book sellers who specialize in Internet sales.
I get my romance in about one minute, and don’t have to bother doing anything more than find the exact book I want and click to buy. Ahhh…the lazy shopper’s best pal.
As for those fabulous big best sellers found on the major lists like the NY Times and USA Today…they are all available on Kindle or Nook, or other e-formats.
I do love print books, too. I own over 9,000 of them…but storage is often a problem, and boxing them up when I run out of shelves to display them on is no fun. But I can store over 1500 e-books on a 4gb flash drive, and I can take it anywhere I go. I plug the flash drive into my laptop and read to my heart’s content. Or I use the smaller e-reader that I bought that can hold up to 200 books. I simply change out the books every few weeks for newer ones.
Over the past several years, e-books have skyrocketed to the most-purchased books on the market…and I love it because they are green publications…no trees were cut to make paper…not a drop of diesel fuel or gasoline was used to transport the books to the seller, and the savings are passed on to the reader. E-books are about 25-50% less costly than print books.
Romance is the single biggest selling genre these days. Why? Well, you can use your fabulous imagination to envision the sexy hero as any guy in the world, and you can imagine that you are the lucky, sexy heroine. A good romance doesn’t let you down and go to sleep while you are still eagerly reading. And don’t start yelling, guys, because there are romance books geared to the male reader, as well. There are romances geared to nearly every romantic taste on earth, and you can read anything from futuristic to historical. There are vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, gods, angels, demons, and extremely sweet and gentle romances where you only find kisses and wishes. I like the ones where the bedroom doors are flung wide open, and steamy leaks out of the pages.
So if you can’t afford that cruise, check out your online publishing websites, the big online bookseller sites, or fight traffic and head for the mall. Invest a few bucks in a few good books, and get you romance right here in Salt Lake City!
