Teaser Tuesdays - The Brontes Went to Woolworths



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading .

Quote two sentences from the book you're currently reading:

I came across these wonderful sentences on the first page of The Brontes Went to Woolworths by Rachel Ferguson. I think it sums up exactly what I feel about books and reading.

A woman at one of mother's parties once said to me, 'Do you like reading?' which smote us all to silence, for how could one tell her that books are like having a bath or sleeping, or eating bread - absolute necessities which one never thinks of in terms of appreciation.

  12. I love the line you quoted-when ever any body asks me if I like to read I feel the same way-question-were you able to find this book in the GMA area?

  16. I didn't like this book, much to my disappointment, but that was one of the bits that I did like. It's a wonderful quote. I'm glad to say I enjoyed Rachel Ferguson's Alas, Poor Lady very much but it's a very different sort of book.
