The anatomy of bibliomania June 7, 2007

Filed under: Books about Books — Kim @ 11:15 pm

This book about books by Jackson Holbrook is on “the usefulness, purpose, and pleasures that proceed from books.” He writes about the psychology behind reading. Why we read, how we read and about what happens to us when we pick up a book. As I understand this, he does it all in a witty manner.

He also writes about authors and their love for books, as well as everything that comes with bibliomania. The search for books, the look of books, the care for them, the housing of books. But he also mentions the fear of books and how this source of knowledge is and has been insulted. I would personally love to read this one! It seems very interesting. If anyone read it, please let me know via the comments! You can learn more about the book and look inside it here.
