Corduroy Mansions by Alexander McCall Smith

The Daily Telegraph (UK) is serialising Corduroy Mansions by Alexander McCall Smith at the moment. You can sign on to get each chapter sent to you one day at a time via email. (I've done that but haven't actually got round to reading any further than Chapter 1). It seems to be like 44 Scotland Street but set in London not Edinburgh. In that it's about the various inhabitants of a tenement house.

Corduroy Mansions is quite a package - as well as the daily chapters there are podcasts, character profiles, a Facebook page, a widget and a video tour of Pimlico.

I couldn't resist the idea of adding a Corduroy Mansions widget. You can see it there on the sidebar. But it falls off the side a little so I've added it here too (unfortunately only visible at limited times for our staff I think) :

(It's embedded here. Again I had to copy and paste into a Word document and then copy and paste here. If you do the Widget thing it sorts you out with a widget automatically - very clever.)
