The Tale of Oat Cake Crag (The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter) by Susan Wittig Albert

But as it turned out, the two had a great deal in common, for both Bailey and Thackeray (named for the famous novelist, William Makepeace Thackeray, author of Vanity Fair) were devoted bibliophiles who believed that "a book a day kept the world at bay," as Thackeray was fond of saying. Bailey was the offspring of generations of badgers who insisted that "Reader" was the most rewarding vocation to which a virtuous badger might be called and who gauged their week's anticipated pleasure by the height of the their to-be-read piles. p. 49
