During this time period, wealthy British subjects set aside some of the conservatism of the Victorian Era. Instead, they focused on expanding their use of technology and developing their leisure-time activities.

When we moved in 2013, I donated hundreds of books to the library. Only my favorites made the move to Arizona. I had every intention to purchase fewer books (it helped that browsing in the closest Christian bookstore required a three-and-a-half hour drive). Our first year here, I…
