Eight lulus in a doozy, and sixteen doozies in a humdinger.

No one knows how many humdingers
there are in a lollapalooza."

This book is great, just had it delivered this week.
It seems to have 2-3 pages on each light

I started reading it last night. Towards the back it tends to wander and be more of the authors own thoughts. However it is certainly a very good book and one I will use in my planned travels in Britain. The new angle of using postcards to tell the story is unique and works well
