  • Divorced women read far fewer romance novels than single and married women do.
  • Romance readers buy more e-books than any other genre's readers. 
  • Romance readers buy more paperback books than e-books.

If you like Linda Howard and Jen Crusie....

I love Linda Howard's novels for the thrilling plots and Jennifer Crusie's humorous dialogues. I've read all their books. Now what?

A quick Google search reveals that Crusie fans should try:
  • Janet Evanovich (yes, although Stephanie Plum is getting stale)
  • Helen Fielding (no, her heroine doesn't grab life by the throat)
  • Sophie Kinsella (yes, although her books as Madeleine Wickham are miles better)
  • Jennifer Weiner (yes to the humour, no to the writing style)
  • Susan Elizabeth Phillips (will try)
  • Katie Fforde (tried but couldn't get into the book).
Linda Howard's fans, meanwhile, should turn to people I've never even heard of, apart from Nora Roberts.

Help, anybody?
