Confession time: I have only read one of Nick Hornby’s fiction books (About A Boy) and that was a very, very long time ago. However, I love his writing about reading and writing about reading, specifically this lovely collection. The first three are compiled from articles he wrote for The Believer magazine and all four chronicle his monthly reading, book acquisitions, and thoughts on both. I found the first two at @greenapplebooks
almost five years ago and devoured them. Today, I found beautiful used copies of the other two at @spectatorbooks
. I am over the moon 🤗🤗🤗 and can’t wait to jump back into Nick’s musings on all things bookish.
Do you have any series that you’ve waited a long time to finish? If so, why? 📚
Also, love this @litographs
