Reader, I Married HimAfter over 10 years of scanning news sites for mentions and references to the Brontës, we have remarked that one of the most malleable and adaptable phrases to come from literature into widespread news reports and columns is without the shadow of a doubt Charlotte Brontë's 'Reader, I married him'.
