The beautiful Letters of Note book, stockists of which can be found here, is finally finished and has been receiving amazing reviews from all corners—just this week it was also named ‘Book of the Year’ by Big Issue; and on December 10th, a hugely talented group of actors, musicians and authors gathered at the Tabernacle in London to perform a selection of letters at the inaugural Letters Live event, with all profits going to the Reading Agency—further Letters Live events will take place in 2014. As for the website, many millions have visited its 1000+ letters. Of those letters added in the past 12 months, the following 15 have been visited the most, beginning with the most popular (to see 2012’s most-read letters, go here).
