Reading a German book about pattern making. He works as a tailor downtown. He'd had an old version that was about thirty-five years old and just got this one in the mail today, so he was flipping through it, seeing if it was any good.

We got to talking about the findings of my blog and about the book that I'm writing--an adventure/romance novel. I commented that people *don't* read adventure romances, and he thoughtfully commented that maybe, when I publish my book, that adventure romances, like well-loved clothing pushed to the back of the closet, will come back in style.
