CATCHING UP ON READING

Lockdown is a restriction but on the other hand it has opened up hours of time for all those things you meant to do.  Well the DIY list is going down but there are other activities too.  Here are some suggestions for old books or new books to read with a London bias.

Given the time available Hilary Mantel’s trilogy could be worth exploring:
Wolf Hall – 9780007230204
Bring up the Bodies – 9780008381684
The Mirror and the Light – 9780008366704

Peter Ackroyd has loads of books on London try:
London Under – 9780701169916

I am currently re-reading Claire Tomalin’s:
Samuel Peyps – The Unequalled Self – 9780140282344

For a less fact based read try:
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman – 9780755322800
The Ashes of London by Andrew Taylor – 9780008119096

Enjoy – John H

    I’d be very grateful if somebody could resend the message that included jigsaw puzzles as I seem to have deleted it. Many thanks.
