    One thought on “Dull Men of Great Britain: Celebrating the Ordinary”

    1. I love this book! As someone who takes a great deal of pleasure from observing the mundane (and has the trainspotting notebooks to prove it), I love this celebration of dull passions. I particularly like the guy who photographs post boxes, the boy who collects tax discs, the man who has visited every railway station in the country, and - my particular favourite - the man who has kept a detailed diary of every time he has mowed his lawn since 1984! Such dedication! These men are a true inspiratio [...]

    2. Ah, this book. It was a Christmas gift from a dear friend, but I finally picked it up to read (my stacks of to-be-reads are dwindling!), and found it to be rather wonderful.

    3. Interesting book on the hobbies and interests of men often considered dull. Examples include bandstands, tax disc collecting and the roundabout enthusiast. The book also includes details on how to become a Dull Men's Club member. This was given to me by my family as a Christmas gift so maybe I should celebrate being a Dull Man.
