Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'I also found a small library, which meant that many copper really needed for food were spent on borrowing books. At this time I read all Mrs. Henry Wood's novels, most of Sir Walter Scott's works along with a good deal of poetry and history, as well as a good deal of rubbish I daresay. But as I have forgotten it it did me no harm.'
