Reading Experience:

Evidence:

‘I am sorry that the Athenaeum is no longer publish’d in such a shape that I can get it, for it is well worth two-pence. I can hardly say as much for the Carlisle Patriot, which is a dear two- penny worth of waste-paper at a fortnight old, seeing it is nothing but waste-paper “in its newest days.” Still it is pleasant to receive any thing which you have handled.’
