London Diary, July 19.

Reading seems to be a fascination here, the number of bookshops and people reading everywhere demonstrates it. There are places that simply invites to a good reading, all over the city. The picture says: ‘Grab your book and join us.’

In this coffee shop they lend you a book and you can get a free coffee when you donate yours.

Even if you do not have anything to read, believe, the city provides a wide assortment of touristic information everywhere!

This one reminds me a lot of São Paulo. People reading in buses and trains.

So, if you have a book to recommend us, leave your suggestion here.

The How to be British Collection

by  Martyn Alexander Ford, Peter Christopher Legon

Very funny way to describe British life.Drawing on their many years’ experience of teaching English as a Foreign Language the authors also offer the wider world a tongue-in-cheek guide on how to get around in English and at the same time make sense of our ‘funny ways’.  It’s a gentle brand of satire, and although there’s the occasional barbed arrow for bland food, fashion disasters or dubious standards of hygiene, the tone of The “How To Be British Collection” is more nostalgic than scornful, and the pet-loving, royal-watching, tea drinking characters that populate its pages are viewed with wry affection.
