Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'In this way I beguiled many a tedious hour at the time I am now referring to, and also during several years following, towards the close of which I thus contrived to read "Robinson Crusoe" and a brief "History of England", with some other books whose titles I do not now remember. The books that first fell in my way, besides those that belonged to my parents, were few and of little worth.'
