My choice in July:

A Visitor’s Guide to Georgian England by Monica Hall

I can’t resist the Visitor Guides for would-be time travellers. They are piling on my bookshelf so I am perfectly prepared for the moment when the time machine is finally, finally invented.

The blub of A Visitor’s Guide to Georgian England promises us to  ‘find everything you need to know in order to survive undetected among the ordinary people. What to wear, how to behave yourself in public, earn a living, and find somewhere to live.’

Yessss! Sounds like the perfect summer read for me!
