4.0 out of 5 stars A joyous burial!, 23 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Buried in Books: A Reader's Anthology (Paperback)
Julie Rugg has enthusiastically trawled through the works of hundreds of famous (and not so famous) writers to produce this anthology about the joys of reading and owning books. The numerous quotes are grouped together in 14 chapters covering virtually every aspect of bibliophilia, from the entertainment that reading books can bring, and of their educational value, through where, when and how to read, examining book recommendations and the care of books, pausing to throw light onto the beauty of book design, exploring the fun of rooting around in second hand bookshops, exposing with dry wit the obsessive compulsive behaviour of some book collectors, and ending with the despair of finding yourself without a book to read. All in all this book is an appetite whetting gem for bibliophiles, best enjoyed by dipping into the extensive quotes rather than reading through end to end in one sitting. As a book lover my only quibble is that the book only came out in paperback, when a beautifully bound hardback would have been so much nicer!
