TOP TEN TUESDAY | BOOKS FOR READERS WHO LIKE BOOKS ABOUT READING

Top Ten Tuesday - New

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday on The Broke and the Bookish is: Top Ten Books for Readers Who Like Books About Reading. Okay, so obviously readers like books, but do they like reading about books and reading? I do. I love finding out how others approach my favourite pastime, and hearing how their relationship with the world of literature developed. To me, this is the best kind of love story because it nearly always has a happy ending.

Some of my faves:

    Q's Legacy - Helene Hanff       84, Charing Cross Road - Helene Hanff
The Uncommon Reader – Alan Bennett
Ex Libris - Anne Fadiman       The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry - Gabrielle Zevin      Matilda - Roald Dahl
Ex Libris – Anne Fadiman
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry – Gabrielle Zevin
Matilda Roald Dahl

A few I’m looking forward to reading:

   Shelf Life - Gary Paulsen
 
What We See When We Read – Peter Mendelsund
Leave Me Alone, I’m Reading – Maureen Corrigan
The Novel Cure - Ella Berthound and Susan Elderkin  
The Novel Cure: An A-Z of Literary Remedies – Ella Berthoud & Susan Elderkin
Why I Read – Wendy Lesser

There are a lot more, but these are the ones the top my list of favourites and my TBR! I’m always looking for more though, so if you know of any great books about readers, share in the comments!

    I'm listening to “Matilda” on audio right now, narrated by Kate Winslet, and it is perfection. I've read it countless times, and it's absolutely one of my all time favorites of life. AJ Fikry will be coming up soon in the roster for me, as my IRL book club pick! I really wanted to do this weeks TTT but didn't have enough time to pull together a thoughtful list! I LOVE yours, and one I would add is “Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore” – kind of a weird book, but I really enjoyed the audiobook version 🙂
