~Regency Wednesday~ Lending Library Ad

I went searching through the 1814 compiled edition of Ackermann's Repository and found this ad for February. I thought, as we are all great readers, that an ad involving the lending library would be of interest. 

I won't transcribe the entire thing, but it does indicate new releases, as well as the subscription fees. 

Interesting thing I'd never realized, subscribers were allowed to "exchange their Books once a Day, but not oftener." Definitely something to keep in mind if I ever decide to write a story that centers around the library.

*Ackermann's Repository, February 1814, p.383. Get the Google e-book HERE or click the image.

♥Happy reading, writing, and blogging!!♥
