Books about books

So usually I’m so busy catching up with reviews and reading, and browsing the shelves in Waterstones and the virtual shelves in Amazon, that I hardly notice the book nerd features, and now here are the ultimate tomes (although maybe not in the literal sense!):  books about books! How fantastic!

The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop by Lewis Buzbee:  a real treasure for anyone who enjoys the oasis of the bookstore amid the insanity of the high street.

Howard’s End is on the Landing by Susan Hill:  a strong atmosphere of rediscovery, of friends recalled and books that had been put to one side finally being understood.

For someone who loves nothing more than to spend brunchtime browsing the book shop, smelling the new books and reading the blurb, these will be joy to read. Of course I can feel another expensive trip to Waterstones coming on as I speak………….
