Tired of London, Tired of Life - One thing a day to do in London

A website about things to do in London

5 January 2012

Buy the Tired of London, Tired of Life book

It's been on the shelves in some shops since the beginning of the week, and has even already sold out in a fair few, but as today is the official publication date for the Tired of London, Tired of Life book, your author would not be doing his job if he didn't encourage you to consider buying a copy.


Your author alone has been writing this website every day for more than three years, spending weekends happily wandering the streets looking for interesting things to document, and late nights researching and writing, just for the love of sharing ideas of things to do in London. There has never been any request for anything in return, and there was never any question of whether there should be. It has only ever been about encouraging people in London to engage with the place in which they live, and spreading the word about what a fascinating place it is to people further afield.

However, if you have enjoyed it, and would like to do something in return, it would mean a great deal if you would consider buying a copy of the book. The best way to do this is to go into your local independent bookshop and ask if they have it in, or can order one for you. This would be amazing, and would make one Londoner very happy.

For more on the book, see this review on Londonist, or listen again to Robert Elms's BBC London show from Monday.

  1. Well done! The book looks great. It's always nice to see people who have genuinely put a lot of time and effort into their online endeavours doing well like this.

  2. It does look awesome, well done, and I am a regular reader of your blog.

    But personally I have one gripe! must you refer to yourself as "your author"?

    Talking in third person bugs a lot of people. Sorry, it's just a pet peeve.

    But that's just my two cents.

    Other than that it is a wonderful blog and you should be proud! :)

  5. Very well done, just saw you on BBC London news, what a lovely fellow you are. I'm as pleased for you as I would be for a good friend. I'll try to get the book as soon as I can, a small thing for a reader to do in return for the time and effort their author has put into this blog.

  8. My only local bookshop is Waterstones as they have eaten all the competition. Well except for Oxfam who murdered the two local independent second-hand bookshops. But will go to Waterstones and order your book. I owe you one as I promised a Gray's Inn lunch but have not been able to fulfil due to unforeseen circumstances. All the best for a successful launch!

  9. Thanks Elegancemaison. Sorry to hear about the corporate big boys (and Waterstones) muscling in. Sad times.

  11. I'll be buying a copy for myself and two as gifts for friends. Your blog is always interesting and is teaching me so much about London. Keep it up and may your book be a sell-out!

  13. I was in Primrose Hill by chance today and saw the book in the shop window of the book shop. Only later did I read today's entry. Not only is the book great, I am completely freaked out.

    Richard.

  15. If only you were, I'd have lots of interesting days out in London. I do work part time, and on my days off I take my daughter round parts of London I want to see, so we're well travelled ourselves. Having said that, we'll be sorted for many weeks to come now I have the book and website.
