A journal documenting my academic research into Genre Romance Novels
Saturday, 22 March 2008
I'm starting to realize that there is a lot more out there than I thought.
Today I began exploring Romance Wiki which is an online resource, best as I can understand, the documents different trends in the Romance Genre- authors, books, academic happenings, and other stuff. It has some great links, which I'm still delving into, but it's got me excited because I'm beginning to realize that there is a lot more academic research out on Romance novels than I thought. The killer is, part of me wants to go out and read some of the books that people are mentioning that I haven't read (and boy, do I feel like my head is under a rock, because a lot of these authors are fairly well known, and I just haven't gotten around to reading them), and the other part wants me to go on inter-library loan and get out all the different academic articles I can get my hands on. I think I'm going to have to get a really big binder, so I can print things off and put a list of what I have in the beginning, so I do go repeating stuff.
