Adult Reading Club turns up the heat

Readers to take another look at the much-maligned genre of romance novels

The TNRD Library System is once again inviting readers to join the Adult Summer Reading Club, which this year has as its steamy theme “Read Between the Sheets,” and will feature a grand prize draw for a Kobo Aura eReader.

Running between July 2 and Aug. 30, the Adult Summer Reading Club is asking readers to take another look at the much-maligned genre of romance novels. Although they have long been scoffed at, romance novels are no longer just bodice rippers – now there are cozy romances, paranormal romances, chick-lit, western romances, and elements of romance are cropping up in books of all genres.

Despite this year’s theme, reading romance novels is not required to participate in the Adult Summer Reading Club. Participants must be 18 and older, and a registered member of the TNRD Library System to participate. Readers can register online at www.tnrdlib.ca and start submitting weekly book logs.

 

For every week that a book log is submitted, a reader will be entered into the grand-prize draw for a Kobo Aura eReader. There will be a maximum of nine submissions per participant. A photo of the winner will be posted on the library website.
