Santa's Lap: The London Collection by... er... us.
Mostly Eaten

Every day this month the Londonist team will be pointing you in the direction of a Christmas present that (with a bit of luck) you won't already have on your list. Climb up onto our collective lap and we'll see what we can move from our sack to your stockings...

Londonist: So do you think it's a bad thing to suggest to the readers that they may want to buy our book as a Christmas present?

Cronenburger: Depends. Is it shit?

Londonist: No. It's got stuff about vikings, pirates and wombles.

Cronenburger: Most books that come from blogs are just repackaged posts with fancy illustrations.

Londonist: Well this is 98% new and doesn't carry a single illustration. There are a couple of blank pages at the back though.

Cronenburger: If you hadn't written it would you buy it? Be honest.

Londonist: Of course. If only to look for the mistakes.

Cronenburger: So you're going to recommend a book riddled with mistakes as a Christmas present?

Londonist: It's not riddled with mistakes. But sometimes we do bend the truth a little.

Cronenburger: Like the bit about the National Theatre being a gigantic Japanese transforming robot? Or that guff about an Islington based cop show called 'Lenin & McCartney'.

Londonist: That's all true. A bit.

Cronenburger: You should blog this conversation. Like you did last time.

Londonist: Well it beats the one we had about the missing werewolf footage from Brokeback Mountain.
