CONTINUING EDUCATION II 

CONTINUING EDUCATION II

Hector, whose sharp little teeth reminded Doris os a piranha, flashed a wry smile as he ripped off his grease-stained shirt. Oops. YOu caught ur practicing for another U of M course titled "Romancing the Novel." This promises to teach students how to become -- what else? -- romance novelists. The course description notes, "Romance novels are criticized by people who don't understand why so many women -- and men -- love them. With a 50 percent share of fiction paperback sales worldwide, the romance novel is legitimate and lucrative." In other, more direct words, there are plenty of lonely, unhappy people with no taste in literature who can easily afford a trashy $5 book. We won't even mention an entire Continuing Ed category called "Water Sports." Woogah!
