This week's Top Ten Tuesday on The Broke and the Bookish is: Top Ten Books for Readers Who Like Books About Reading. Okay, so obviously readers like books, but do they like reading about books and reading? I do. I love finding out how others approach my favourite pastime, and hearing how their relationship with the world of literature developed. To me, this is the best kind of love story because it nearly always has a happy ending.
Some of my faves:
The Uncommon Reader - Alan Bennett
Ex Libris - Anne Fadiman
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry - Gabrielle Zevin
Matilda - Roald Dahl
A few I'm looking forward to reading:
What We See When We Read - Peter Mendelsund
Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading - Maureen Corrigan
Shelf Life: Stories By the Book - Gary Paulsen
The Novel Cure: An A-Z of Literary Remedies - Ella Berthoud & Susan Elderkin
Why I Read - Wendy Lesser
There are a lot more, but these are the ones the top my list of favourites and my TBR! I'm always looking for more though, so if you know of any great books about readers, share in the comments!
