The ideal gift for any book obsessive, A Book Addict's Treasury is an extensively researched anthology of more than 350 quotations and extracts from a wide selection of writers and thinkers - all on the subject of books. The witty, wise and evocative words cover every aspect of bookishness - including hoarding, buying, borrowing, arranging, stealing, choosing, losing, reviewing and displaying - and comprise memoirs, poetry, journalism, fiction and philosophy. The sources of the extracts range from Erasmus to Edith Wharton to Umberto Eco, from Dante to Descartes to Dickens, from Edward Gibbon to Kenneth Grahame to Groucho Marx. Celebrating the timeless pleasures of reading, casting an irreverent eye over the foibles and eccentricities of booklovers and revealing the reading habits of a host of famous writers, this compendium is a must for any bibliomane. Indeed, if you buy only one book this year, this one is probably not for you.
