  1. Just curious –
    – How come you discovered Annie Payson Call? Can you tell me anything about her?
    I have looked at some of her texts at Gutenberg, I do not believe they are written in a humorous mood, even it this is a tempting way to read her today, what do you think?

    • I came across her while browsing through Gutenberg looking for potential erasure texts. I’d never heard of her before, but this article provides a little background. Most of the essays in this particular book were originally published as columns in Ladies’ Home Journal, and she is definitely serious about what she’s writing. I think some of her ideas have merit, while others are clearly dated.
