Best Pink Reads

The Book Escape

805 Light St., (410) 504-1902,

Yeah, other used bookstores have “Romance” sections, but that’s not the point here, the point is the Book Escape in Federal Hill devotes a darling dead fireplace to real estate it labels “A Bouquet of Romance & More Love in Regular Fiction shelves.” With books by Emily Griffin, Sophie Kinsella, Diane Johnson, Anna Maxted, and Jennifer Weiner, the special section is a sea of pink-and-greens or baby-blue spines covered in baby bottles, stilettos, and daisies. The Book Escape noticed career women in stylish cosmopolitan pencil skirts and heels have replaced oiled-pirate Fabios ravishing ladies in nightgowns on covers, resulting in a modern collection. Hey, romance’s not all we read, but this is the place to find it.
