I enjoyed reading this! You know that you have it bad when you start reading books about people who read books. I will defend myself though by saying that by reading such books I am put on to books that I may not have looked at or heard of any other way. I treasure these pointers that take me in an important direction. Important because of what I gain from each book that I read. The selection was eclectic, and I have read about half of Manguel’s choices, I look forward to looking at the others and then coming back again to his book to re-read what he said about them.
