15) The Duke and I, by Julia Quinn

Gosh, two books cast aside in one day! This was one of the freebie e-books I got with my Palm T|X years ago (in fact I have read all the others, and enjoyed them). But two chapters of this is enough; it is romantic tosh, and insultingly inferior to Vanity Fair which I guess is one of its distant literary ancestors.
