Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader
 

Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader by Anne Fadiman

Description: This book plots a lifelong obsession with books and reading. As Fadiman herself says: "Books wrote our life story, and as they accumulated on our shelves (and on our windowsills, and underneath our sofa, and on top of our refrigerator), they became chapters in themselves. How could it be otherwise?"

The essays include a description of the "marrying" of her and her husband's libraries, memories of her family of compulsive proofreaders and "The Joy of Sesquipedalions".

A small volume packed with original thought, perfect for anyone who is passionate about books.

Details: Paperback, 132 pp. Measures 18 x 11cm.

  Free UK delivery if you spend over £30.
