Books About Books and Reading

For dedicated bookworms, it’s not enough to read books—we love to read books about books.

We know the richness and depth these books add to our reading life. Books about books and reading are a great place to gather ideas and insight.

Reading is, for the most part, a solitary act. But readers always find ways to create community—from book clubs to Booktube—we love to share our reading experiences and our favorite books with others who understand our obsession.

Books about books combine all the things we love about reading into one package of bookish catnip. We get to read about how books are created; how reading has shaped the lives of those we admire; how books influence culture and encourage change. We are constantly amazed at the power of the written word, and books about books make us feel like we are tapped into that power.
