A Passion for Books: A Book Lover's Treasury of Stories, Essays, Humor, Love and Lists on Collecting, Reading, Borrowing, Lending, Caring for, and Appreciating Books - Rob Kaplan, Harold Rabinowitz

Just an enjoyable read. I read this collection of short stories before going to bed and if I awake and can't fall back to sleep. 


Standouts so far?


Pillow Books by Clifton Faidman - an essay about what to read before bed. I loved it. I loved the way Faidman wrote and his turn of phrase. I connected with this story too because I have trouble picking what to read before bed. I will take him up on his suggestion of Anthony Trollope's novels.


Comfort Found in Good Old Books by George Hamlin Fitch- Heartbreaking. :(  Essay about how a man found comfort in literature after the sudden death of this son.
