Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'I read in the "News Chronicle" articles about the work, and especially the account by an ordinary housewife of her day. Mass-Observation, it was something new, something to talk about; the things I do in the house are monotonous, but on the 12th, they are different somehow, letting the dog out, getting up, making the dinner, it makes them important when they have to be remembered and recorded.'
