Are you tempted?

romance report

Romance Report 2010 is out!

Harlequin’s survey revealed that buying books was the number one temptation most (75%) Americans could not resist during the 2009 recession – sacrificing vacations, shopping sprees, dining out and going to the movies.

And they found that 20% of women have stolen money from their men’s wallets. Hmm. Maybe the ladies are stealing the money to buy books….

    Who did they survey? Because if it was their readers, it might be a slightly biased sample.

      Here’s the official statement from the small print in the press release:

      The survey was conducted online at (the “Website”) by Harlequin Enterprises Limited (“Harlequin”) between September 17, 2009 and October 4, 2009. The survey was open to all adults over the age of 18. The Website was visited by more than 3,000 men and women from around the world. Survey results reflect the opinions of respondents and do not necessarily reflect those of Harlequin, its parent company or its affiliated companies.
