      It's not known what books exactly the Slanciks had, but Bozena borrowed
      books from a friend whose library included works by Slovak authors
      Kalinciak, Sladkovic, Vajansky, Marsall (who immigrated to the U.S., and
      was an editor of the American-Slovak News[paper]), Tomasik, Chalupka,
      Hurban, Hviezdoslav, Kukucin, and others; and by foreign authors including
      a Slovak translation of Enoch Arden by Tennyson, works by Gogol, Tolstoy,
      Turgenev, "Rinaldo Rinaldini" by Vulpius, and other authors.

      Of course, this friend (the daughter of a notary public in a nearby
      village) was just one source of the fiction and poetry that Timrava read.
      Among the other sources were the Slovak magazines to which the Slanciks
      subscribed, and which published general articles, as well as Slovak and
      translated literature. She read some Hungarian magazines that carried
      fiction, too.
