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.
