The Diary of a Provincial Lady

Reading experience
Identifer:

Evidence

"I"m not keen to read books dealing with the current situation. War"s grim enough, I prefer to choose books without war interest. For that reason I try and get books of the humourous kind, such as ""Night on Wheels"" by Ian Hay, and ""The Diary of a Provincial Lady"" by E.M. Delafield. Books that provoke a laugh. During the winter months reading"s been my main hobby. As I"m a quick reader, naturally I choose a fairly thick books of average size with medium print. Never the large type. I like a substantial book, not one that I can finish quickly. On the other hand I don"t like books of the size of ""Gone with the Wind"" or ""Anthony Adverse"", some 900 pages. Either of these books should have been issued in two volumes."
