I thoroughly enjoyed this hilarious tale of mistaken identity, thwarted romances and upstairs/downstairs interactions that takes place in the early 19th century. If you like Wodehouse's Wooster and Jeeves or Blandings Castle novels, you will enjoy this stand alone story. If you are enjoying Downton Abbey, this would be a lighthearted take on the same period.
I read it on my Kindle, but the library has an audio version that you can check out, which is very well read by Jonathan Cecil. It was later made into a movie starring Fred Astaire.
The audacity of hope [sound recording]: thoughts on reclaiming the American Dream by Barack Obama — At five discs long, and read by Barack Obama himself, this was an easy listen. Obama talks about his senate race, empathy and compassion in politics, and balancing his home life with his passion for his work.
