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”.

Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader, Anne Fadiman
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.
