So Many Books, So Little Time



I have just finished this book by Sara Nelson and managed to read it in...ooh a day! It was great to read a book by someone who gets me, basically like all the other lit blogs out there. Although I haven't read a lot of her reads, and some of them hadn't heard of them, it was still very enjoyable and I have added a few more books to my wish list. I recognised myself a lot in these pages, taking ages to choose just the right book, always carrying a spare just in case etc!
This will be one of the books on my Something About Me challenge, now I am off to go and choose some others.

I can't wait to see what else you chose for the Something About Me Challenge. "So Many Books..." was really good, I also liked "Biblioholism" by Tom Raabe and "Ex-Libris" by Anne Fadiman, as they are very similar to "So Many Books...". You'd probably like them too.

I have read the Anne Fadiman one but not the other one, will def look out for that one, thanks!

I read this book and really enjoyed it, although it wreaked havoc on my wishlist!

Another bookish book is Anna Quinlen's 'How Reading Changed My Life'

Hello! I'm just visiting and noticed Sara Nelson's Book here. I loved this book! I read it a few years ago and remember a part in which she describes that she has on occasion 'not been truthful' (my words) to her family about reading or being in a bookstore, can't remember the details. Anyway, I remember being able to completely relate to that! Glad you enjoyed the book.

I read this when I was sick a couple of months ago. I read through it rather quickly, I just loved it!
