I chose this cause I ❤️ the idea of exploring a city you only know through books-that kind of vicarious travel is one of my favorite things about reading. By all rights I shouldn't have liked this as much as I did. Nothing really happens, & I'm not quite strong enough in the classics to have read all the books referenced here. But her writing is just so strong & this was the sweetest love letter to writers readers & to London-it just made me happy
22/52 - 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 - I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! Although I did not “get” all the London Literary references because I haven‘t read ALLLL the wonderful books set in London, I still enjoyed it. I can‘t wait to visit London!!!
Well, I fell asleep while trying to finish reading this last night. I was determined to finish reading it at lunch, but never stopped for lunch. Tonight is the night to finish up!
Great comparison here!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ it!
I am no sure why it is taking me so long to read. Only 45 more pages to go! I can do it tonight.... unless I fall asleep.
Made progress on my flight!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ing this book!
For such a short book, it is taking me a long time to read. I know I was busy reading menus and museum plaques while traveling this week, but I am heading home today. Maybe I can finish the book on my 2 plane rides.
I am finding little time to read while on vacation, but I am reading a few pages each day. This chapter makes me want to read all of Dicken‘s work. So many books to read and so many places to visit....life is too short.
Lovely quite afternoon relaxing and reading. A great way to spend an afternoon.
Her writing is so beautiful! I can‘t wait sit to visit London. She references many pieces of literature that I must read!! Great book so far.
Spending an hour getting a pedicure and starting another book. Two chapters in and I am so in ❤️ with this book! This is the first book by Anna Quindlen that I have t ad, but I already know, I will read more.
Yes, the toes are purple!!!
Saw this and thought it was the perfect way to start a Saturday of reading - although on the couch rather than in bed :)
I now have this wonderful map of Fictional London on my office wall. Isn't it awesome? You can order it at www.theliterarygiftcompany.com 😍😍
