Manuscript Monday: Don'ts For Wives & Don'ts For Husbands

On this weeks Manuscript Monday Meredith recommends Don'ts For Wives & Don'ts For Husbands by Blanche Ebbutt.

These two books always caught my eye at the register of my local book store. Their size alone was appealing – a bit smaller than the size of my hand—and the titles evoked curiosity. I finally bought them on a whim one day, and glad that I did. They are reprints from 1913, and though its target audience are those with a household staff and a wife at home, much of the advice stands up today. The writing can be a little cheeky and is fun to leaf through and read aloud with my husband. I personally think they’re a fun companion gift to a wedding or engagement present.
