The Ear in the Wall

by Arthur B. Reeve

I found this pulp piece mildly amusing. Not so much for the story but for how anachronistic it is today. The mores, conventions, the 'ultra-modern' investigative contraptions invented...

I used it as a nightly sleeping pill and eventually got through it. It isn't the sort of stuff I normally read, and I believe that it and its ilk can pass into obscurity.

Though the other reviewer, with more insight into history, did make some fine points about it being a bit of a time capsule.

A Cigarette-Maker's Romance

by F. Marion Crawford

I really was charmed by this novel.

It is well-crafted and gave me a chance to ponder around the concept of "do the clothes make the man".

It was very touching.
