I love a list (or two!) so these books are right up my street. They're great as I tick off the places and gardens I've visited, as well as providing some inspiration on where to go and what to see while there.
Ticking the places I've been to is one occasion I write in my books. The other is in cookbooks on recipes I've cooked. But other than that I very rarely, if at all write in my books - is that strange, do you write in your books? Do you have any other habits with books?
The 1001 Gardens is a recent birthday present from MOH, and reminded me of the 1000 Places book which I've had a while now - I mean, it has an £11.99 Books etc price tag on the back cover!
