Because sorry, but even two-sentence reviews are too time-consuming right now.

Also, let's play "how many of these books are about England." Becaaaause that would be all but two of them.

1. The Geography of Bliss, Eric Weiner

Some countries are happier than other countries, but it's anyone's guess as to why.

2. Sorry, I'm British, Ben Crystal (and some other guy.)

In which I learn about builder's tea for the first time, and this after a lifetime of reading books set in England and about English people.

3. Blackout, Connie Willis

Crying, just crying.

4. Insight Guide to London

Really, really super awesome, and I don't think I could have pulled off the kind of iteneraries I've made without it.

5. Lonely Planet ePocket Guide to London

Good for the few things the Insight Guide missed.

6. London Under, Peter Ackroyd

Other reviewers seemed to think this was pretentious and annoying; I think they missed the point.

7. Not a Drill, Lee Child

Short story; still counts.

8. All Clear, Connie Willis.

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock." STILL CRYING.

9. The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet, Bernie Su & Kate Rorick.

A little fanficcy, not much new information, and not at all like a real diary would read - but still nice to revisit the LBD world.
