The problem with romance novels is largely people who problematize romance novels. (And yes, problematize is a word, even if Firefox doesn't think so). How dare authors get kudos for writing something a lot of people (well, women mostly, but they are kind of people) enjoy. Fer shame!
And while I am on the subject. The problem with calling ebooks ebooks (instead of just books) is people who think there is a value different between "ebook" and a "book", rather than just a semantic difference (specifically ebook as a subset of book, letting consumers know what format said book is in).
