Recommended for: fans of Nick Hornby, fans of reading

This collection of essays comes from Hornby's columns for The Believer.

He just writes about what he's read. He's not writing book reviews, exactly; he just tells why he chose to read a certain book,what he learned from it,how he felt about it, and how it compares to other books he's read.

I love reading other people's views on books, and Hornby's style is really great for this type of writing, conversational and casual, like you're sitting with a friend over coffee.
