Book descriptionFor so many people, reading isn't just a hobby or a way to pass the time--it's a lifestyle. Our books shape us, define us, enchant us, and even sometimes infuriate us. Our books are a part of who we are as people, and we can't imagine life without them.

My thoughtsI enjoy Anne's blog as Modern Mrs. Darcy and her podcast, What I should I read next? so I wanted to give her book a try. I felt like her and I were having a conversation as she is in love with books as much I am. Each chapter is short and easy to read. You will find some good book recommendations as well as a few ideas on how to keep track of books you have read and a few other things. Glad I picked this book up.
