My plan was to start 2014 off with a nice, important classic: namely, Walden by Thoreau. But then, What I Did for a Duke (2011) by Julie Anne Long became available at my library. Probably no one will be surprised when they hear that I am finished with What I Did for a Duke and only about ten percent done with Walden.
Anyway, I’m very pleased to say that Mrs. Julien and I now have one romance novel that we both really like! I keep reading romance novels: and the ones I really like, she thinks are okay, and then the ones she recommends to me, never really grab me. I thought we’d be forever at odds, but What I Did for a Duke was different. I was entertained throughout the book, and I never got bored–even near the end, which is often a problem.
