The Review

For my 35th birthday I bought myself a gift. I bought myself Bibliophile by Jane Mount. I saw it, I weighed up the pros and cons of spending a fair bit of money on a book and I decided that yes, I deserve the book, it’s my birthday and you cannot take the money with you. All of this was a fruitless action because the moment I saw Bibliophile I knew it would be mine.

Bibliophile is made up of gorgeous illustrations, lists, shops to visit, bookish history and the all powerful cover design. You get so much from this book – including another load to add to your TBR pile.

I have read a lot of books about books and Bibliophile has to be one of my favourites. It is so tactile and beautifully put together. It is an absolute treat.

Go on, treat yourself. You deserve it!
