I saw this list over at Book Riot about their top books about books. It immediately brought to mind my ultimate choice: Anne Fadiman’s collection of essays entitled Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader. It includes meditations on a range of bookish topics, including how one merges one’s library with their partner’s, quirky explorations of the flyleaf, and authors’ use of lists. There’s even one essay about reading a book in the place in which it is set.
