Miscellaneous Linkage

From the Guardian:

  • Rupert Wright's favorite books about France. Yup, a top ten list. Most of them are about food unfortunately. I've never been to France but my guess is there is more happening there than the food.
  • A touching article about reading aloud. My Bookman and I used to read books and short stories to each other and it was marvelous. I'm not sure why we don't do it any longer. Maybe it's time to get back to it.
From the NY Times: Can you survive Dickensian London? play the game and find out. (link via (Maude Newton). I ended up in jail for picking pockets and missed my chance to meet Charles Dickens. I should have staye away from the Fagin character.
