Sue Baker's view...

This anthology is built around books; buying, and borrowing, recommending them and, of course, reading them. The joy of anthologies like these is how many buried treasures they unearth, nuggets from long forgotten authors that have you furiously scribbling down must read books that will lead to many happy hours of reading and the joy of finding them as celebrated here. And how I agree with Julie Rugg when, in her introduction she says “ ...simply messing around with books is one of the very best ways to pass the time there is”.

Synopsis

Buried in Books: A Reader's Anthology by Julie Rugg

Following her highly successful Book Addict's Treasury, compiled with Lynda Murphy, Julie Rugg returns with a second anthology of literary extracts, quotations and bon mots concerning every aspect of bookish behaviour: reading, buying. borrowing, recommending, hunting, even defacing. This anthology includes diaries, memoirs, novels, plays and letters by authors from Samuel Pepys to Iain Sinclair, from Robert Louis Stevenson to Nick Hornby, from Laurence Sterne to Lucy Mangan. A perfect gift for the book obsessive in your life.


Reviews

'Buried in Books'
would be a fruitful addition to any booklover

's pile. Exploring this delightful anthology is akin to rummaging in the better sort of second-hand bookshop. Independent This is a book for people whose love of literature is much more than a nightly flick through the book closest to the bed. This fun and frothy homage will delight and enthral that member of your family who always has their head stuck in a book. Buried in Books is a wonderful way to spend a free afternoon. Suffolk If you're an obsessive reader, stroke this book lovingly, listen as you riffle through the pages and be proud that you are in good company. Yorkshire Riding A fabulous compendium of writing about literature... Anyone with half an interest in reading should invest at once. Sunday Express'
