Just on a whim, I posed the question the other day as to whether it was possible to read my way around the whole of mainland UK. I hadn’t really given it a lot of thought, but as spend a large portion of the year driving around the country, I thought it would be interesting to see if you could do the same in books.
I’ve noticed a wide variety of locations in the books I read, many of them American for sure, but a large number also set in the UK. There is a fascination with major cities such as London, Edinburgh and Glasgow, and as I read a lot of crime I’d probably expect that. Crime does tend to be more prevalent in areas of urban sprawl. But there are many stories set outside of these cities, a good number of which I have probably read or intend to read.
