I read a little bit. And there’s nothing I like better than finding an amazing book and sharing it. If I like something, I’ll put it in here. If you have a favorite book everyone needs to read, submit a review or suggestion.
Favorite Quote of the Week: “Roughness and honesty are indeed sometimes found together in the same person, but he is a poor judge of human nature who takes ill-manners to be a guarantee of probity or character,” -Florence Hartley, The Ladies Book of Etiquette, and Manual of Politeness; A Complete Handbook.1860. Available for free, here. If you have a Kindle, it’s here
Ms. Hartley also wrote that “Loud talking and laughing in the street are excessively vulgar. Not only this, but they expose a lady to the most severe misconstruction. Let your conduct be modest and quiet.” An unintentionally funny look at how times have changed for women.
