Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'I'm reading Quiller Couch's "Art of Writing", & am more & more convinced that he should be read by everyone compulsorily. He hits the nail on the head. Also "Screwtape Letters", which should also be widely read, as are most revealing. Feel less like working seriously this term, than reading widely. Can't decide whether this is good or not, but shall not yield to impulses too greatly.'
