Free Romance Books on the iPhone

wrapped.jpegAs the publishing world braces for a recession-themed holiday season, Harlequin just released four free e-books on Stanza, the iPhone digital reader.

The titles include romance classics like Wrapped and Ready, The Mistress’ Secret, Stroke of Midnight, and The Spy Who Loved Her. The giveaway will promote the 3,000 other romance titles that Harlequin has on the Stanza.

As GalleyCat reported, romance titles are among the most successful during this tough time for publishing. From the release: “Romance is one of the few genres of physical books that are doing well in what has been a tough time for publishers and a tough time in the economy for a lot of people. Many people don’t realize this but romance is the #1 genre of books overall with some eye popping statistics.”
