15 Fabulous Books about Books

15 Fabulous Books about Books: "Is there anything better than to read a book… about a book, or books, or bookshops, or authors, or the pleasure and processes of reading, or collecting, or being addicted to books? The Man Who Loved Books Too Much by Allison Hoover Bartlett, one of AbeBooks’ bestsellers in 2009, was the latest addition to a long list of books about books (or in this case a book thief) to capture the attention of bibliophiles. With classics like Fahrenheit 451, The Haunted Bookshop, and 84, Charing Cross Road on this list, you cannot go wrong."

I amsuprised they did not include any of John Dunnings mysteries, particularly the first one.

Well, they did go wrong. Morley's PARNASSUS ON WHEELS is far superior to his HAUNTED BOOKSHOP.
