#BigBooks can mean anything. Is the book big because of its size, page numbers, selling numbers, world changing content?

Okay, philosophical questions aside. One of the #BigBooks on my shelves is the tagged book - given the spine width.

drokka Great book, though it did take me a long time to read it due to its size - was difficult to hold and not convenient for commuting. 5y
julesG @drokka That's the reasons I'm only reading bits of it at a time and don't take it with me when commuting. 5y
DeborahSmall This is great. I love Peter Ackroyd. London Under is a lot lot smaller @drokka you may like this too 💕 5y

If you love London, you'll love this book. An epic biography of London as a living creature.

Mehso-so

This was a bit of a disappointment. Very wordy, but it didn't feel like I learned much at all. It's difficult to put into words, but I was left feeling very dissatisfied.

Taking advantage of this beautiful Spring day ... the Spider and I scooted down to the park on the lake. She plays. I read. Win win. 👍🏻

Nemone What a great afternoon, I would have loved reading instead of working 😖 How is London ? 6y
MamaJody So far so good @Nemone ☺️ 6y
