Looking ahead to my 2019 reading

Persuasion - Jane Austen

With the year coming to a close, I'm already looking ahead to what the next year will hold. The biggest event on my calendar is my upcoming trip to England, and it's fueling my interest in reading some more English history in preparation for it.

 

Already I've identified roughly a half-dozen titles I'm planning on reading before I go, including a few titles on the history of London, a couple of books on Christopher Wren and his architecture, and two of Jane Austen's novels, Persuasion and Northanger Abbey. I imagine that the list will grow, at which point I'll have to pare it down -- after all, I'll only have so much time to read before it's wheels-up for London!
