What? Louisa May Alcott said that! Surely not. In case you’re thinking that the author of Little Women was not the woman you had always thought, fear not. She put this absurd thought into the mouths of one of her characters in Work: A Story of Experience, a semi-autobiographical novel published in 1873 about a determined young lady intent on finding satisfying and worthwhile work.
As if one could ever read too many books; as if a fondness for the written word could ever addle the brain.
Take care and keep laughing!
