As to what I'm reading, ok I know it's after 7am so I've missed the give-away but I'll add this in anyway. I'm reading a novel by Winifred Holtby South Riding. It was first published in 1936, after Holtby's death at the age of just 37. The book tells the story of a fictional community in Yorkshire, South Riding, in the 1930s and the reason I picked it up in the library is it tells of a young idealistic headmistress and her fight to improve education for girls. This ties in with my current archivist post - cataloguing the records of a teaching union, the National Union of Women Teachers, who along with fighting for equal pay for women teachers also fought for equal educational opportunities for girls. It may sound a bit dry but it's written in a really easy to read style and gives a very colourful depiction of life in the 1930s.
