Romance IS real literature!

For those of you still dismissing your romance collections as a pile of fluff, anti-feminist, sheer titillation, or other derogatory terms, I give you Teach Me Tonight. Recent topics have included:

Romance in Teaching American Literature

Challenging the Beauty Myth

Negotiating Gender Relations: Penny Jordan's They're Wed Again

There has to be something to the romance genre. It must reflect something we need in society. While I would never equate being on a bestseller list with quality, it does say something about the culture. Bravo to Teach Me Tonight for exploring!
