She read too much…

Bette Davis was divorced from her first husband in 1938 because, according to his testimony as reported in The New York Times, she read too much. Or as he said, “She even insisted on reading books or manuscripts when I had guests. It was all very upsetting.”

I don’t often speak ill of the dead, but really?

There are lots of reasons to divorce in an unhappy marriage, reading isn’t one of them.

Something that first attracted me to my husband? He read to me! Still does, and I love it.

One of my personal quirks? I refer being in thrall to the computer screen as boxing. Got your nose stuck in a book? Why, that’s a window to another world and I heartily recommend it.
