One of my better reads for the year so far. Focuses on Buzbee's career in the book biz, with historical background on publishing in general. Strikes just the right balance between educational and general-interest.
A wonderful book for any booklover! It captures in words those feelings of our childhood books, those book orders from the Weekly Reader, that first novel that opened a new world and the wonder of browsing the shelves for hours to find a treasured book. It educates on the history of booksellers going back to a time when the only books were hand written and accessible by a privileged few and bringing us forward to modern bookstores and the internet. The journey is such a pleasure, the things we learn along the way are just a byproduct.
