Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) This list has ballooned to several times the length of the original list. FWIW, the original list only comprised:

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, Robin Sloan
The Man Who Loved Books Too Much, Allison Hoover Bartlett
The Book Thief, Markus Zusak
Books: A Memoir, Larry McMurtry
If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler, Italo Calvino
The Polysyllabic Spree, Nick Hornby
Phantoms On the Bookshelves, Jacques Bonnet
Reading Lolita in Tehran, Azar Nafisi
Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader, Anne Fadiman
Bibliotopia, Steven Gilbar

Question to the list creator: Should the "added-on" entries be removed, or are you OK with the additions?
