MWA HA HA it is MINE. For $5.98, from Half Price Books. MINE.
Will not read again - vaguely interesting, but nothing extremely special.
Delightful, daily news created by the Stephen Family. Virginia Woolf and her siblings in her teen years during 1890s. Clever and engaging. A peek into the lives of a highly literate family, meant to amuse and impress parents with exceedingly high standards.
