Even in the Midst of Work: Reading among Turn-of-the-Century Farmers' Wives.
Weber, Rose-Marie
Reading Research Quarterly, v28 n4 p292-302 Oct-Dec 1993
Analyzes the content of extension bulletins directed to farmers' wives and of their responses to it. Finds that the women generally accepted the recommendations of the "Cornell Reading-Course for Farmers' Wives" (offering an ideal vision of literacy tempered to suit women's life on farms) but valued reading mainly as a diversion from work.
