I had a tremendous amount of fun doing this video for B&N and hope you enjoyed watching it! If anything I said sounded interested, please come and visit the website I've run for the past ten years - All About Romance - at http://www.allaboutromance.com (or my blog, at http://laurielikesbooks.blog-city.com - I've blogged for over five years).

Great video, Laurie!

You were articulate and interesting and I think you make an excellent case for romance readers everywhere and why we like the books we do.

By the way, congratulations on recently completing the 12th annual reader poll - I found the results quite interesting and now have a whole new list of books to glom!

Thanks

Thanks, Lynne. I wanted to "represent," as they say. :smileywink:

As for the results in AAR's 12th annual reader poll, I'm glad you checked out the results. I'll look forward to your comments on them - and the analysis! - on the At the Back Fence Forum over at AAR. As for new books to glom, what can I say besides, "Me too!"?

Re: New from the Barnes & Noble Studio: Book Obsessed

I was so excited to see the completed video after reading all about the filming at AAR. And it was wonderful to put a face to your online presence. Your comments about the romance novel reflect many of my own thoughts and feelings about the genre. Of course, you expressed yourself much more eloquently than I ever could and looked a lot better on camera! I think anyone who watches the video who is not a romance fan may decide to take another look or possibly change their stereotype of the typical romance reader and the romance novel in general. And those of us who are "romance obsessed" like you will surely agree that you represented us well. Congratulations!

Thanks, Tinabelle...that's really nice of you to say. Tara, the producer of this series, is someone who reads and respects those who do. I couldn't have asked for a more "romance friendly" person than she is. And when we talked about what I would wear, she never asked for me to wear a flowy skirt and "puffy shirt." :smileywink: That's another way I knew they would take care of me and not allow me to come off as ridiculous.

Wonderful job expressing the joys of reading romance. I hope non-romance reading folks were curious enough to watch the video and in turn will now make a point of trying a few books. I was one who had no interest in romance until I was convinced to try one - what a revelation!

That was a delight to watch. No one else could have done the job better!
