The Review

I loved For the Love of Books.

It is a wonderful little compendium of facts and stories about some of our best loved authors. The layout is fun and you can dip in and out of it at your leisure…if you can be strong willed enough to pause in between reading. Personally, I found that I couldn’t. I wanted to know more information and read more about the books and the authors.

For the Love of Books is the perfect present for the book lover in your life!

For the Love of Books – Stories of Literary Lives, Banned Books, Author Feuds, Extraordinary characters, and more by Graham Tarrant is available now.
