Grace visits the Book Wenches and asks:

Is there a stigma attached to reading romance?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
I think so. <o:p></o:p>
It is only since becoming a published author of historical romance that I ‘came out’ and admitted to reading the genre. The strange thing is that since I went public, people I consider perfectly normal, intelligent, fulfilled and responsible, who I never previously suspected of being fellow addicts, also came out and said; ‘Oh yeah, I love reading romance to.’<o:p></o:p>
So why this reluctance to go public? <o:p></o:p>

So what do you think?
Are you secretive about your romance habit, and if so, why?
