2/8/11 “To us it appears as if it were but yesterday, that the grave, the serious, the religious, and the prudent, considered novel reading as an employment utterly beneath the dignity of the human mind . . . In those days, it was almost as disreputable to be detected reading a novel, as to be found betting at a cock-fight or a gaming table. Those who had sons would have supposed them forever incapacitated for any useful pursuit in life, if they exhibited an inclination for novel reading; and those who had daughters who exhibited such an inclination, would have considered them as totally unfitted for ever becoming good wives or mothers” --James McHenry (1824)
