Judith (jloucks) Please tell us more of what you thought of this book! The title is so intriguing! Is it nonfiction? Is he a good writer? Is it a book about books?

Always curious....

Patrick | 46 comments I read some reviews of this when it came out and I would really like to read it! I have a lot of respect for what the author tried to do...which was to read the ENTIRE Encyclopaedia Britannica, from A to Z. I think he did this in one year.

No matter what he gained from it, that is one unbelievable amount of reading!

Anna (annawelch) | 230 comments I read this book a while ago and I really enjoyed it. At times it's just laugh-out-loud funny (or at least a good chuckle), and at other times it's touching. I would recommend it.

Natalie I *loved* this was humorous plus he includes a bunch of odd trivia he learns while on his quest to read the encyclopedia.
