Reading Experience:

'24th October 1928. Late to work. Hurried letter from mother asking me to obtain for her 10 copies of ?la Vie Litt?raire? (Cours Moyen). The publishers are Alcyde Picard, and mother gave me his address as 18, rue Soufflot. On my going there, however, I found that his address is actually rue Hautefeuille. [...] I got the books and posted them off although the money was only sufficient for seven and I could not supplement it being ?a sec?. ?La Clart?? (H. Barbusse)'
