If you are in London this summer, be sure to check out Books About Town’s 50 literary benches spread throughout the city. The benches are sponsored by the National Literacy Trust to “remind Londoners on the streets of the joy of reading books.” Everyone from Virginia Woolf and Oscar Wilde to Ian Fleming and Cressida Cowell are represented.
