    Review based on ARC (advanced readers copy received in exchange for an honest review). What a stunning book. It seems weird to read a book filled with drawings of books... yet, it's the perfect thing for those of us who love books. Frankly, I'm rather impressed with Mount's ability ...

    This book was a joy to read for an ardent bibliophile such as myself. Amazing and colorful illustrations that outline the absolute Nirvana of the reading life. ...

    I love this book so much that I'd give it ten stars out of five, if I could. This book was written just for me, I think. It's everything book-ish. It's good books, of course, by list. It's wonderful bookstores. It's great libraries. It's authors and illustrators. And it's all...

    I'm a fan of Jane Mount's art (I even have one of her prints), so of course I loved this. Mount says in the introduction that one of her goals is to increase the reader's TBR list exponentially. I was skeptical of this because I feel like I've already heard of every great book out ther...

    I adore books about books. This one made my TBR get even bigger, my list of bookstores to visit grow longer, and made my heart happy while I spent time pouring over this beautifully illustrated collection of bookish miscellany. ...

    This book is just gorgeous! Where it lacked in content it made up for in beauty. I enjoyed Jane's drawings and wanted to rip them out of the book and post them all over my bedroom wall. I wanted more book stories to go with the drawings. I loved the drawings and stories about the be...

    ***Update*** I had to knock it down a star for its classification of Jane Austen?s works. Ms. Mount says the difference between a love story and a romance novel is that a love story ?includes regret, a rough patch, or a greater tragedy, and it is also critically regarded.? So by ...

    I was sent a copy of Bibliophile by my bookish buddy Katrina because I've been working with the publisher for my day job. This really is my sort of miscellany. Jane Mount is super talented ? I have been coveting a bookstack print myself ? and Bibliophile is full of literary facts, ...

    This is a beautifully illustrated curation of books to read spanning different themes. The themes may be decade-based or interest-based, and I thought it was fairly comprehensive, diverse, and inclusive -- having different sections on cookbooks, innovation & business, design, creat...

    Another absolutely wonderful book about all things bookish. Lists of course, classified into subjects, classics, sports, fantasy etc. I did pretty well on many of the lists, except for the genres I read little of, fantasy, scyfy. This is so much more than just lists though, it also hig...

    An illustrated miscellany of books?! This was right up my alley, and it did not disappoint. Mount?s illustrations, paired with facts about authors/publishers/illustrators/bookstores/bookish stuff, was a treat to read and look through, and I now have a HUGE list of to-be-read books (t...

    I love this book and, no, you don't read it, the way you read a novel. For me it is a beautifully illustrated reference book that I will dip into often. At the core, the book has carefully curated lists of books on topics ranging from dystopia to romance to cult classics to kids books....

    I loved everything about this book. The content, the illustrations, the layout, all the choices. A book about books for bookish people! Celebrate the awesomeness of books! From where they are kept (bookstores and libraries) to how they're presented (illustration and different editions)...

    I enjoyed reading about the different bookstores around the world and how they got their start. I also enjoyed some of the educational information about genres and about books themselves. But other than that, I wasn't too impressed with this one. I really wanted to love it, but it was ...

    The subtitle of this book is "an illustrated miscellany." But I would subtitle it "the Joy of Books, Illustrated." Jane Mount is a very talent illustrated who came up with the idea of painting the books sitting in front of her in her kitchen. Then people began to notice what she was do...
