Three Hundred & One Things a Bright Girl Can Do. Jean Stewart. The Musson Book Company, Toronto, 1911.
The book begins with a ringing endorsement of women’s “carriage, health and intellect,” and offers as proof the example of bicycle riding: “How gracefully and well does a woman ride a bicycle usually; how hump-backed and ungainly do most men appear upon the same machine!” Stewart has great faith in the abilities of girls: later on, she writes that “Almost every cultivated girl, at some period of her life, finds herself interested in Gothic architecture.”

Long after nothing persists and the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, the smells and tastes stay poised, every drop holding the vast structure of recollection.

Every guy ever: You're a sexy librarian. You must just sit and read all the time. Haha what an easy job. Libraries still have books, right? I haven't been in a library since 1932.
