London for Books


My trips to London have always involved visits to bookstores, large and small. It especially is fun to discover authors whose books are rarely seen in American bookstores.

Foyles is a tradition; a glorious hodgepodge. Check out some of its stories here including the famous one about a letter to Hitler.

What are some other bookstores that should be on my list?

I don't have a bookstore to recommend, but I do have an author:

I recently found his most popular book available at Project Gutenberg in Australia in html format:

The Art of Thinking by Ernest Dimnet
http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks14/1400451h.html

One of my favorite books, and I especially appreciate his thoughts on reading the newspaper.
