Certainly very nice... I wondered: iN An ideal Husband, somewhere in the first act, mrs. Cheveley answers to somebody saying that her husbad adores the blue books, and she says that she prefers ones in yellow covers... What on earth does that mean?
help, i*m so curious....

nah... I don't think so. I think the blue books are those ones where you can look up names and achievements of famous people. And this guy could look up himself, and liked them for that reason
And yellow books must be something interesting... I still wonder what.
but thanks anyway
