Where are my romance book lovers at? Have you seen the news about The Ripped Bodice??
The Ripped Bodice is the project of Bea and Leah Koch. They plan to open a romance exclusive bookstore in Los Angeles, California in the spring of 2016. The Ripped Bodice would be the first and only one of its kind in the U.S. What a fabulous idea!! I bet more than a few of us are kicking ourselves for not thinking of it first.
“Following in the footsteps of many local booksellers before us, The Ripped Bodice will be more than just a place to buy books. It will be a community space, with a full calendar of events, including author signings, book clubs, lectures by leaders in the industry, and so much more.” –Bea and Leah Koch
I highly encourage everyone to check out The Ripped Bodice’s Kickstarter page and to donate as much or as little as they can. Not all of us will have easy access to this gem of a store, but let’s help give the romance community something to look forward to! Who knows? Maybe this will motivate you or someone in your state to open up a romance exclusive bookstore. Here’s to hoping! 🙏
