I defy any book lover not to relate to this!

This is essentially a collection of quotes about books and reading drawn from fiction, critical works and memoirs. These extracts are divided into categories, such as 'Buying Books' and 'Bookish Vices', and then arranged into miniature dialogues where each piece plays off the one before. This builds into a delightful book full of 'oh-my-God-that's-me!' moments; I will treasure it and dip into it again and again as time goes by because it expresses universal, enduring sentiments of genuine love for books and the joys of reading.
