Romance Only Bookshop

I spotted this on the BBC website.

Romance novels are a billion dollar industry, vastly outselling science fiction, mystery and literary books.
And there's only one rule for writing a romance - it has to have a happy ending.
Yet the romance genre has long been dismissed as smut or trashy by many in, and out, of the publishing world - a fact that mystifies sisters Bea and Leah Koch, who last month opened the US's first exclusively romantic fiction bookstore.
Their shop in Los Angeles is called The Ripped Bodice, and the store's motto is "smart girls read romance". Read more here

Anyway as I scanned the post I spotted something that warmed the cockles of my cynical old heart.

There's also a large erotic section, a Spanish-language area and plenty for young adults, as well as the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer communities.

Thank you for being inclusive. May you sell much happiness, Bea and Leah.
