Put simply, this is a book about books. Beloved book shops, libraries, and authors’ writing rooms intersperse lists of book categories, tidbits about authors, and lively illustrations. Author and illustrator Jane Mount makes no secret of her intentions: to double your “to-read” list. I certainly added several titles to my own list, as well as one title to my “to buy” list! Bibliophile is an essential volume to every reader’s bookshelf.
