I moved to London in September 2010 and being a bit of a novice I managed to choose a house in Tooting despite working in Russell Square. For the uninitiated this means I have a 50 minute tube journey every day. Now this is most people’s idea of hell especially on the Northern line which is one of the busiest lines running in London and is especially crammed in a morning. However I love it.
Why? Because it means I get to spend almost two hours a day reading guilt-free!
I decided when I came here that I would do my best to get through all those books you “have to read before you die” and I have to say I’m doing pretty well, even though I keep getting distracted by new, shiny books that I have to read RIGHT NOW.
So this blog is a place where I can share my thoughts and feelings on books and the tube and maybe get some feedback from the world in general on what I should read next. I hope you enjoy it.
Just to prove I love the tube, here’s a picture of me on it (without a book):
