Reading Experience:

Evidence:
Harriet Countess Granville to her sister, Lady Georgiana Morpeth, from Paris, 1 August 1825: 'I have begun reading the Bible with notes regularly. I always liked what is called serious reading, to me so much more light in hand than much that is called lively [...] I think it a beautiful and most delightful confirmation of all that the Bible is, that it should be not only the most interesting, but the most awakening pursuit, so that all that is in the letter, when once read in the spirit, becomes the delight and comfort of one's life.'
