Review

"Dear Fahrenheit 451 is hilarious, sweet, gross at times, but most of it is `amazeballs.'" - Times-News "An easy gift for a bookish friend, but you'll want to buy a second copy for yourself." - Times Union "Spence's book can be both hilarious and nostalgic, irreverent in her takedowns of certain books, but poignantly appreciative of ones that changed her life. It reminds adults of the rewards of reading for recreation, and of reading outside our comfort zones." - The Voice "Dear Fahrenheit 451: Love and Heartbreak in the Stacks is my new `go-to' book to give to friends and family who are avid readers." - Cascadia Weekly "Spence has a light touch and her choice of titles is eclectic and sometimes unexpected ... her humour is sharp, snarky and often laugh-out-loud ... Dear Fahrenheit 451 is one book you won't want to break up with." - Buzz "A librarian delivers a charming epistolary volume that begs to be read with pencil in hand." - Kirkus Review "On the totally reasonable premise that we have relationships with books that feel like relationships with people, US librarian Spence penned this wonderfully witty and wise collection of letters to books she has cared for in the line of duty" - The Bookseller "A delightful read" - Stylist "Annie Spence loves books not as Petrarch loved his Laura - reverently and from a distance - but more as an adherent of the Kama Sutra might: up close, personally, and from an astonishing variety of angles ... You will find opinions you endorse without reservations, and you will find bones you need to pick with Spence. You will find earthy admissions about the pleasure of reading on the toilet and lofty ones about books that rewire your insides for keeps. Best of all, you'll come out with a list of books you need to track down immediately and read for yourself." - Margaret H. Willison, NPR Books "Spence's love for an impressive variety of works is deep and true; her guilty pleasures are sweet; her frustration with and scorn for others are outright hilarious. She's that outspoken friend who knows what you'll like to read, but won't judge you if that's no more high-brow than pulp fiction." - Irish Times "A winsome volume" - New York Times Book Review

Review

"A winsome volume" - New York Times Book Review

“Spence's love for an impressive variety of works is deep and true; her guilty pleasures are sweet; her frustration with and scorn for others are outright hilarious. She's that outspoken friend who knows what you'll like to read, but won't judge you if that's no more high-brow than pulp fiction.” - Irish Times

“Annie Spence loves books not as Petrarch loved his Laura ― reverently and from a distance ― but more as an adherent of the Kama Sutra might: up close, personally, and from an astonishing variety of angles ... You will find opinions you endorse without reservations, and you will find bones you need to pick with Spence. You will find earthy admissions about the pleasure of reading on the toilet and lofty ones about books that rewire your insides for keeps. Best of all, you'll come out with a list of books you need to track down immediately and read for yourself.” - Margaret H. Willison, NPR Books
