I’m writing from London, here this week for a work conference and meetings at the British Library. Today’s my one free day off, so the musician and I are about to head out for a canal ride and market browsing, and maybe some other low-key sightseeing. I’ve been here before, once in high school (when I happened to end up in Harrods at the moment when it was bombed), and a few years back, when I had a column (keep reading on page 2 and 3) in the London Times Saturday magazine, I met my editor for lunch as I was heading through town to Scotland.
Anyway, it’s fun to be back although London (at least the street that the British Library is on), is quite busy, a bit overwhelming. I guess I’ve gotten used to the slower pace of D.C.
We’ve decided to avoid temptation and not travel over to Rochester where there’s apparently a fabulous used bookshop. A fan from the U.K. inquiring about Emily Post’s publishing history just turned me on to it but I’m afraid I’d end up carrying too many books home on the plane!
One thought to “Hello from London!”
Abi… headed to London in a few weeks. I know that I will be shell-shocked spending dollars instead of pounds!
