Required Reading, On Books that Celebrate Reading

required reading, books about reading

This post is for the die-hards.  Those who love reading enough to want to read about reading. You know?  So many of us are constantly looking for book recommendations.  And yes, we can all click over to Amazon or GoodReads, but we keep seeking out a human connection when we look for what to read.  Amazon can tell us that a book is one of their editors’ picks of the month, but we want to know that a friend of ours read it and loved it.  We’re constantly chasing that teen-reading feel.  We want to get lost in books; we want to be, as Jane Austen put it, regardless of time.  We are aching to find the next book that we can’t put down.  One of my favorite places to look for books to read is in other books.  These are my favorites.
