I read a book to earn this badge:
Wired Love: A Romance of Dots and Dashes
Written in 1880, this book takes us back to a simplier, slower time when people communicated by letter or in rare occasions, telephone. They could also send messages by telegraph. Nattie Rogers is a lonely, and slightly bored telegraph operator, who strikes up a friendship with an operator at another station whom she's never met. This book is at times, comical, sweet, sad, and romantic.
