Welcome to This is Audible, where the ancient art of storytelling meets the cutting edge technology of satellite radio and digital downloads. Today we’re celebrating love and romance, crushes and sonnets, with everyone from David Cassidy to Lord Byron. We talk with Allison Pearson, whose teenage passion for a TV heartthrob inspired her to write her very funny novel I Think I Love You. Maggie Linton talks with best-selling romance novelist Luanne Rice, whose new novel The Silver Boat looks at sisters coming home and growing up. And Caroline Kennedy has put together a collection of poems entitled She Walks In Beauty, and we’ll find out why she made the choices she did. But first, Maggie has the top 10 romance downloads from Audible.com. [Broadcast Date: May 10, 2011]
