Light Reading in Leisure Hours: A Casual Commentary

Article publication date: 1 May 1936



I HAVE been asked to write on the subject of light reading for leisure hours: books of the kind you take away with you on holiday: books you pick up to pass away an hour of pleasant idleness. The subject I find difficult enough in prospect, for, intermingling with reading of more significance, such books are apt to slip quickly from memory. On the other hand, those that do come to mind will have made a special appeal and be worthy of mention, whether on account of originality, piquancy, beauty, or wit.
