Reviews

".So skilled is Ms. Hill at bringing her books, and their authors, vividly before us that by the end of her year of reading we come to feel that her book-brimmed house is itself a lively presence, not so much haunted as animated by these familiar spirits."-Wall Street Journal

".Delightful bibliophile's memoir.Just try to read this book without nosing around your own shelves"-Booklist
