Looking for escapism? Try a romance novel.

I doubt I'm the only one who avoids the news because I don't want to read one more story about murder, the economy or corruption. I even avoid the home page on my email because I don't want to read the latest headlines. My regular reading tendencies run the gamut from popular fiction to biographies, historical romances to home and fashion non-fiction. I have noticed that the more I want to escape the more I turn to romance. There is just something about the hope that love conquers all. Apparently I'm not the only one, check out this great article about the increase in romance book sales.
