Praise

“This rich offering of musings on books by authors, collectors, and booksellers . . . will remind readers of the consolations and challenges of literature.” –Chicago Tribune

“Rabinowitz and Kaplan have put together a delightfully eclectic collection of anecdotes, stories, essays, humor, cartoons, quotes, and lists written by writers, critics, booksellers, and book collectors, as well as by the editors themselves. The material speaks not to the activity of reading but rather to the pleasure derived from choosing, holding, and having books. This subject matter makes the work truly unique. Book collectors will smile and nod in agreement again and again as their obsession is legitimized by everyone from Christopher Morley to Ray Bradbury to Norman Mailer to Petrarch . . .  This superbly edited collection is highly recommended for all libraries.” –Library Journal
