Things I Learned on the 6.28 : A Guide to Daily Reading, Hardback Book

Things I Learned on the 6.28 : A Guide to Daily Reading Hardback



For a whole year on his train to work, Stig Abell read books from across genres and time periods.

Then he wrote about them, and their impact on our culture and his own life. The result is a work of many things: a brisk guide to the canon of Western literature; an intimate engagement with writers from Shakespeare to JK Rowling, Marcel Proust to Zora Neale Hurston; a wise and funny celebration of the power of words; and a meditation on mental unrest and how to tackle it.

It will help you discover new books to love, give you the confidence to give up on those that you don't, and remind you of ones that you already do. Things I Learned on the 6.28 has been written for the reader in all of us.
