Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'It was entirely due to its colour that another book became my constant companion. This was an illustrated Scripture text-book, given to me on my seventh birthday, and still preserved...some of the little pictures are very crude, but most of them, especially such short commands as "Walk Honestly, "Fear God"...are tasteful enough.'
