The Yellow - Lighted Bookstore

Part memoir, part history, by Lewis Buzbee, this book is terrific. It took me a while to get into, because I was not familiar with Buzbee's style and wasn't sure I liked it. As I continued, the writing grew on me, drew me in. He mixes his own experiences as bookstore employee and book sales rep with the history of books, production, printing presses, bookselling, bookstores, publishing, etc. For a bibliomaniac like me, it turned out absolutely fascinating.
