I have been a follower of Very British Problems on Twitter for quite a while now. When I read Rob Temple put together a book of the amusing British observations I knew I had to acquire a copy.
Sadly my local library didn’t have a copy but I was in luck with Thrift Books! If you’ve never been to that site let me tell you, it’s a gem when you are looking for a hard to find book and the prices are phenomenal. They even have a wish list and will alert you when you book is in.
This book pairs well with a good cup of tea. It’s clever and the layout covers observations in pubs, topics related to weather, food, get togethers and more.
Here are a few pages from the book – it’s cute!
If you enjoy the site Very British problems you will love this book. Nice gift for the Anglophile in your life.
Rob Temple is a journalist and founder of the @SoVeryBritish Twitter account, which now has more than one million followers, and a consultant on the official Channel 4 Very British Problems series.
Originally from Peterborough, he recently moved from South London to the countryside to provide more storage space for his rapidly expanding collection of inedible hot sauces and to be alone with his thought(s). He’s not that keen on hot drinks but is fine with just water if that’s okay?
