A Great Place To Be

For a literary enthusiast such as myself, London is a great place to be. The Booker shortlist selections are featured at most every bookstore in anticipation of next month’s announcement of the winner. Yesterday we visited the British Library and saw the desk that Jane Austen wrote most of her novels on. In the same room was a manuscript of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales ( circa 1410) and a few Shakespeare folios. I also enjoyed glancing at Dr. Johnson’s notes on a trip to Wales. Anne and I also walked down to Hampstead to take a peek at the Keats house in the evening and we heard a nightingale singing there.
