Overall, I enjoyed this book. I haven't read all the books Sara Nelson talks about, and for the ones I have read, I didn't always agree with her opinion. I found the writing to be a little mean-spirited sometimes, but maybe that's just a part of being a reviewer--and Nelson was also quick to laugh at herself.

I loved this and so I'm surprised by the many one-star ratings given to this book by people at Amazon. They complain about Nelson not writing enough about the books she reads and too much about her own life (they even complain about her not liking the right genres and not reaching her goal of reading exactly 52 books within the course of the book) - but the book's subtitle is 'A Year of Passionate Reading' for goodness sake! To me, at least, that says that it's about her reading life, not just about the books she reads. And I very much enjoyed reading about her life and her thoughts about the books she read and the thoughts the books brought about in relation to her life.

I've read many of the books Nelson writes about, have a few others in my TBR pile and am about to add several to my wishlist...

Thanks for sharing this, jumpingin! I'll share it with MiuM next :)

I read this book partially and I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. In my opinion too she could have talked more about the books. Also I hadn't read many of the books she did either. Maybe I just weren't in a right mood for the book.

If a book has a title like this, how can anyone or at least any bookcrosser resist :D I grabbed the book at the BC meet-up in Turku two days ago. Thanks!
