Valentine’s Day is approaching soon, and that usually means romance will be in the air — both in our “real” lives and what some of us will read or watch. But what about bromance? 

We're not talking about some buddy comedy, but the more traditional romance novel genre that is starting to attract more male readers who, in the past, were likely too embarrassed to admit they were fans.

The Show recently spoke with Tim Xayasomloth of Changing Hands Bookstore about the trend, and why he’s on board with it.
