i just stumbled over this book in the guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/oct/16/100-best-nonfiction-books-no-89-a-tour-through-the-whole-island-of-great-britain-daniel-defoe-1727

we dont have it yet, might be because this edition is all i could find and it is difficult to read. someone might be able to find a different edition though and i think we have a lot of readers who might like to record this :)

Hi, I’ve just been searching librivox - and the www generally - for this specific book! I’m a brand new volunteer reader though (and have yet to complete my 1 minute test), so I should probably start with something a little bit simpler... It might be something I come back to, as it’s a great suggestion!
