really liked it

I loved this book, completely absorbed by it. The author describes exactly how I always felt about books. I was taken by someone who understood just how I felt about books and reading.

To quote: "Reading was a reward, a solitary, obscure, nocturnal reward."
"Or was it to a retreat from life, …"
"How could I "live" when there was so much to be read that ten lives could not be enough?"

A small book, an easy read, that seemed to understand just how I felt.
