At last week's book club chat for What I Did for a Duke, one of the participants who went by the excellent name of 'CutMyTeethonKleypas' said that she was looking forward to Julie Anne Long's next book, A Notorious Countess Confesses ( A | BN | K | S | ARe | iB ).

So here's my question for you: have you ever called in sick to work or school to stay home and read a book? What was your excuse? And which book was it?
