I'm reading The Typewriter Girl by Alison Atlee:
Type-writer girls, they oughtn't think too much.
I'm reading this book for a blog tour scheduled for next week. It has a very interesting premise and and I am enjoying it very much. Set in London area during the turn-of-the-century, Betsey Dobson is struggling to be viewed on her own merits - but in a man's world, that is the unforgiveable sin.
I remember using an actual type-writer in a typing class in high school...something that is now a thing of the past. I think using the type writer really helped me pay attention to my typing as there wasn't that delete button! Did you ever use a type-writer?
