    3. Reading is a comfortable, solitary, slow and sensuous taskom the preface, p xiReading a book about reading, and specifically one whose table of contents consists of a list of books, it would be reasonable to assume an interest or at least a curiosity, on the part of a reader, in the actual titles Although this did not turn out to be the case, when I first confronted the titles in AM s short list, I thought boring Most of these books are familiar , and I had read 4 or 6 of them, so long ago that [...]


    4. Reading Alberto Manguel is always a reader s holiday The incredibly wide universe of his reading and the cultured and erudite explanations of those readings give readers a shared feeling of the joy books bring as well, at least in my case, knowledge of writers and books unknown and unread One reads him with a pen in hand, at the very least to make note of new titles he discusses.This book is an exploration of a theory that when immersed in a good book the reader begins to see manifestations of o [...]


    5. Alberto Manguel is the type of person I imagine drinking too much coffee with and staying up until the wee hours passionately discussing books This book is largely a series of notes and observations as he rereads some of his favorites during 2002 2003 The books often connect to the moment his discussions of remembering 9 11 a year after the fact and the commencement of the war in Iraq are riveting The dangers of a book like this, of course, is that it increases my to read list.The books he reads [...]

    8. i ve thought long and hard about how to better record the connections that i make and wish to make when i m reading books then i found out that alberto manguel had written part of that discussion for me.on book summaries and giving away plots I don t like people summing up books for me Tempt me with a title, a scene, a quotation, yes, but not with the whole story Fellow enthusiasts, jacket blurbs, teachers and histories of literature destroy much of our reading pleasure by ratting on the plot.on [...]






    9. I would agree with those who call this book a love letter to reading This book can as well be titled The Man Who Loves Books VERY Much narrated in an autobiographical manner And the kind of love depicted in the book resonates to me than John Gilkey s story To Gilkey a book loving is like a fetishism For Manguel, reading is the extension of life He goes back and forth between the realm of reality and of literary with a graceful movement Reading has been second nature to him that he can connects [...]
