Praise

“[Queenan’s] passion for reading is infectious … It’s so rare to hear such a heartfelt defense of books — it’s one of the most original works we read this year.”
~New York Daily News (Best books of 2012)
 
“A celebration of literature, reading and the call of books from a stylish humorist who has a soft spot for Georges Simenon and a hard time with trendiness and ‘astonishing’ reviews.”
~Kansas City Star (Top 100 books of 2012)
 
“A passionate, at times hilarious, account of a life spent reading and rereading.”
~Minneapolis Star Tribune
  
“Queenan’s goal isn’t just to declare his love for books and to list particular books that he loves, but to suss out the customs of book lovers: to analyze what books mean to his friends and acquaintances (not to mention a few enemies), and how books forge or destroy friendships.”
~Leah Price, San Francisco Chronicle
