Reading Experience:

'Oh, I read the reviews in the "Sunday Times" and the "Times Literary Supplement", when I can get hold of it. I also read the book reviews in "John O' London's". Quite often I get interested in a book and this leads me on to reading more about the subject. For instance, I read the "Guide to Edinburgh" and that introduced me to James IV period, and then I read all about that. Other times I just glance at the title and open the book, and by reading a few lines at random I get some idea of the book, and if it interests me I'll take it out.'
