Flora pounced on some books which lay on the broad window-sill . . . She put these treasures away in a drawer, promising herself a gloat when she should have time. She liked Victorian novels. They were the only kind of novel you could read while you were eating an apple.
~Cold Comfort Farm, by Stella Gibbons - Chap. 5
I could not agree more. Flora is a kindred spirit.
BTW, I am thoroughly enjoying reading Cold Comfort Farm - it's just as good as the movie, for any of you who have seen it.
