This book is filled with many book related quotes, including those about buying, selling and reading, with my favourite being the bibliomania sections. Some of the thoughts on book matters are light hearted, others are more serious, but all are absolutely fascinating to the dedicated reader. The illustrations it contains are delightful and make this book a joy not only to read but also to browse through in spare moments. There are some fabulous book poems too, some of which I have never come across before. Written by Donaldson, who obviously has a terrific sense of humour as well as being a true book lover, this is a must have book for all bibliophiles.
