Read in January, 2006

I'm a sap for reading books about books and books about readers, so this book was perfect for me.

My favorite essay was by Bill Holm. Here's a little bit that I liked:

"...I read them (books) like an addict. A day---even an hour or two---without print makes me edgy and hungry. I hide books in my car, both trunk and cubbyhole, in my office drawers, in side pockets of duffel bags....The vision of jail with a good library is not so bad. With no books, I'd be a fine candidate for suicide....Books contain the seven basic food groups of the soul. Ignore them and you starve inside; you die with a malnourished, shrivelled, bony spirit...."
