Wheh! I made it. This challenge is harder than it looks; I was trying to find really good quotes from all the many quotes I like, and it was hard to make all those decisions. But it was all worthwhile as I remembered some good books and inspiring words along the way.
Thank you, Shehanne, for nominating me. To check out Shehanne’s saucy romance blog, click here.
Today’s Quote comes from bestselling author Nora Roberts talking about romance:
All some people see is the big R and dismiss it. But I’ve made my career on my own terms and that doesn’t necessarily suit the likes of the New York Times book review.
They don’t see that as legitimate. But it’s just so insulting towards millions of people. Why would you apologise for what you read for pleasure? Just think of the illiteracy rate. Every book read for pleasure should be celebrated. And novels that celebrate love, commitment, relationships, making relationships work, why isn’t that something to be respected? – Nora Roberts
