Reading Experience:

Evidence:
E. M. Forster to Syed Ross Masood, mid-January 1911: 'I am reading Lyall's hand book about the English in India -- the sort of thing I required [for preparation for travels in India]. Also I have failed to read another of Alice Parin's [sic] novels called Idolatry. The other I tried was good, but this is about missionaries & wicked Hindus and most tiresome.'
