Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'A lady I know well was sitting by the fire one evening. She wanted something to read so she reached out a hand to the bookcase by her side and took out a book at random. It was Humbert Wolf's "The Uncelestial City". She read the entire book. Then she had finished she lay back in the chair thinking, and it seemed to her that Wolf came into the room and sat down opposite her.'
