Feature and Follow Friday #212

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow!

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

Each week there is also a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Find out who they are at Parajunkee or Alison Can Read. It is required, if you participate, to follow the Feature and the hosts.

Question of the Week: What is the biggest city you live near (or interesting landmark)? Show us a postcard picture.


A. My nearest city is Oxford, which I guess is a place lots of people know about. Its famous for its university spires and The Bodleian Library amongst other things.

Of course, Oxford is also famous for being the filming location for many TV series and films, including Inspector Morse and Harry Potter.

Finally, this being a book blog, you can't ignore Oxford's Literary Heritage. Oxford has links with many famous authors including C.S. Lewis, Tolkein, and Lewis Carroll. It is also popular for having several Blackwells bookshops (it should be noted that there is also a Waterstones).

There is lots more I could say about Oxford, and probably lots I don't know as well, but that's all I have time for at the moment.

Have you ever visited Oxford? 
What would you say its most famous for?
