The Great Big Romance Read2.png

The Great Big Romance Read was started by The Ripped Bodice Bookstore, the country’s only all romance bookstore, in 2018. Our goal is to connect romance readers all over the world and celebrate a shared love of romance by reading the same book during the month of September.

Anyone can participate in The Great Big Romance Read. You can find a bookstore or library in your town that is participating and go to an in person meeting. You can join in one of the many virtual discussions happening during the month of September. You can get some friends together and start your own group!

Our book for 2019 is The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics by Olivia Waite.
