Reading Experience:

Evidence:
"Winnie Seerbohm, who left Newnham College, Cambridge in November 1885 after only one term's study, suffered from what seems retrospectively to have been nervous asthma combined with a pathological inability to swallow ... she was ordered total rest ... While she wished to be read Ruskin's Stones of Venice aloud, her sisters desisted after a couple of chapters, thinking that it was too heavy for the invalid."
