A Passion for Books

All weekend I helped some friends move. I was wiped out and spent a good bit of today reading. I finished up A Passion for Books, edited by Harold Rabinowitz and Rob Kaplan. It is full of quotable bits. It is a collection of essays and stories and cartoons and editorials. The intro by Ray Bradbury is a wonderful start. The essays specifically on how to collect books weren't all that interesting to me and, as the book was published in 1999, i would imagine that much of the information is outdated, especially with the internet available now. But overall it is quite a nice book. a 5 from me.

  1. I find it sad to admit that I read this post and thought, "that sounds familiar" only to click on the link and realize that I have that book buried around here somewhere.
