Tired of London, Tired of Life : One Thing a Day to Do in London Hardback
by Tom Jones
As the late great Samuel Johnson sagely observed, 'When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.' When author Tom Jones found himself doing the same things week in, week out while living in England's treasured capital, he decided to heed Johnson's words and seek out a thing to do each day in London to make him fall back in love with the city.
Here, in Tired of London, Tired of Life, Tom shares the fun, diverting and imaginative things that you can do to keep yourself amused in London.
With seasonally appropriate suggestions for each day of the year, you can explore East London by canoe, search for Fagin's lair in Clerkenwell, play petanque in Southwark, seek out Aphrodite in the British Museum on Valentine's Day and enjoy a host of unusual ways to enjoy the capital. So grab your A-Z and start discovering a whole other side to this majestic city.

Review by h_d
This is a good little book for those who think London has nothing to offer besides late trains, congestion, high prices, people with wheelie cases trying to break your ankles, people using garden parasols as umbrellas and a lot of people you might want to push off a bridge (I had a really arse commute today). <br/><br/>There are quaint places, cool places, literary, historical, for eating, for drinking and just for plain old idling. I may actually buy a copy and use it as a to-do list. I won't include the suggestion to go watch rutting deer though. I'm sure it's a beautiful experience, but... well, I'm sure it's a beautiful experience.<br/><br/>
