Do you recognise these lines ?

The books lasted for ten days. They were eaten too quickly in long gulps of twelve hours at a time. ... (he) would follow the rays of the sinking sun from the kitchen to the dining-room and thence upward to his own bedroom until all was gray dark, and he ran down to the kitchen fire and read by its light. He was happy in that he was left alone and could read as much as he pleased.
