Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: So Many Books, So Little Time: A Year of Passionate Reading (Paperback)
I was a little worried when I was first given this book thinking that it would be a list of facts and recommendations. So I was really pleased when I found out it was more like a reading journal/ memoir, written in a really compelling and humorous way.
If you are a bit of a bookworm, you'll recognise yourself in these pages...have you ever judged someone by the book they're reading? Carried two books with you in case you ran out of reading material? or ended up staying up into the wee small hours just becasue you want to read one more chapter? If you answered 'yes' to any of those questions then this is the book for you!
It also has some great recommendations which aren't forced down your throat.
I loved this book. I just wish I wasn't still part of, what Nelson describes as, the 'Clean Plate Club'....I'd love to be able to abandon those horrible books that I'm not enjoying....maybe now I'll give it a try.
