Evidence

"Nottinghamshire collier G.A.W. Tomlinson volunteered for repair shifts on weekends, when he could earn time-and-a-half and read on the job. On Sundays, ""I sat there on my toolbox, half a mile from the surface, one mile from the nearest church and seemingly hundreds of miles from God, reading the Canterbury Tales, Lamb"s Essays, Darwin"s Origin of Species, Wilde"s Ballad of Reading Gaol, or anything that I could manage to get hold of"". That could be hazardous: once, when he should have been minding a set of rail switches, he was so absorbed in Goldsmith"s The Deserted Village that he allowed tubs full of coal to crash into empties".
