Book Obsession

On my trip this weekend, which i'll talk about later, I read The Man Who Loved Books Too Much by Allison Hoover Bartlett. I also picked this up from the library last Wednesday. It's a modern story which threw me because i had been under the impression the book covered events that had occurred a long time ago.  John Gilkey steals books through credit card fraud and bad checks and Ken Sanders is a bibliodick who connects the crimes and leads the police to capture Gilkey.  

I'm torn. I learned a bit about the book business and white collar crime which was all very interesting.  But since it is a modern story it doesn't really have an ending, it just ends.  so I am going to give this one a 4.  

sorry about the poorer written reviews these last few posts.   I'm just not feeling it right now.
