Reading (19th century)

In the 19th century not all young people, namely women, had access to public or private education. Therefore reading habits were not very common.

No séc. XIX nem todos os jovens, nomeadamente as mulheres, tinham acesso ao ensino público ou privado. Não eram, por conseguinte, muito vulgares os hábitos de leitura.
