Probably the best places to read in London right now

Book Thoughts

 

Jeeves & Wooster bench

Jeeves and Wooster, P.G. Wodehouse. (The Brunswick)

Where better to read than sat atop a giant book? When I heard about this temporary art exhibition from The National Literacy Trust I decided to hunt them out – and I did! I love the concept and design and hope it will encourage people to read some of these excellent examples of British literature. There are 50 book benches spread around the city and I’ve found three so far – find the rest and more details here.

Hercule Poirot and the Greenshore Folly, Agatha Christie (Bloomsbury Square Gardens, modelled by my sister.)

I had thought I was going to find Mary Poppins and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in Bloomsbury Square so was a little disappointed about that, but perhaps I’ll find them another day.
