During WWII the bell in Tom Tower, Christchurch College, Oxford, chimed 101 times at 9:05 pm

Joy in reading and 101 chimes at 9:05 pm

An account of the intersection of my life with books. Reading some odd things about Oxford, UK – in a biography of Dorothy L Sayers by Colin Duriez – made me recall odd things in books I’ve read. And made me think about how I started reading, what I read over the years, what endures, and my habit of acquiring books as travel momentos.
