And people tended not to bother a woman with a book.

    Hmm. Interesting quote. The first time I read it through, I thought it saying not to bother GIVING the books to women; I assume it’s intended as: don’t bother a woman READING a book. 🙂 I’m reading The Handmaid’s Tale at the moment… it must be rubbing off on me. Happy Thursday!


    1. Ha! No worries, Amber. I took this quote as “Don’t bother a woman reading a book because you’ll catch her wrath. You cannot handle her truth.” Thus, making the quote even fiercer. Happy Thursday to you too!

        Ooo, I quite like the fierceness of that. I imagine an interrupted bookworm brandishing a rapier and it’s delightful. XD
