Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'Yes, I read more as have more time- but have gone onto novels and escapist literature- cannot read such books as The Mortal Storm and books like Fallen Bastions now. I also try to keep up with political reading but find it rather difficult- for example to follow the communist line- but still read the Daily worker, Tribune, New Statesman, each week to try and get a composite picture but get depressed as the papers differ so from the daily papers such as the Telegraph, Mail and Express.'
