Reading in Bed

"Wow! this Persuasion is hot stuff!"
Non-fiction ~ essay
Published in The Spectator, 5th May 1928
1,035 words
(First read 29/04/2014)

One of those "It does exactly what it says on the tin" jobs: EFB ruminates on the pleasures of reading in bed, advises on what to read and what not to read ~ Jane Austen falls into the first category, Wuthering Heights into the second, but he of the no-doubt-stripey jimjams favours above all else things like 'the note-books of Samuel Butler' (whoever he was) and the Essays of Elia (whatever they might be).  Still, it's mildly diverting.  It can be read online here, in or out of pyjamas.
