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

Freespirit This sounds great! 5mo
IndoorDame @Freespirit it had a quiet tone, but as long as you like that I highly recommend it 5mo

I was having a hard time finding women authors whose names started with Q for #litsyAtoZ when I came upon this which I'm really enjoying so far!!

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.

Monica5 If you go by my TBR list, I will never die. I keep adding to it.🤔 2y

Saw this and thought it was the perfect way to start a Saturday of reading - although on the couch rather than in bed :)
