Reading Experience:

'Thursday 22nd July. ?Unparliamentary Papers? (Reg Berkeley). I am on my own in the luncheon hours now and find it difficult to escape boredom. I am as fond of conversation, provided it is not merely aimless, that to have to confine myself solely to reading and lonely observation is rather tiresome. I have had a rather jolly trip round the book-stalls today, though, and had I been other than broke, might have picked up one or two bargains.'
