Description
Following her highly successful Book Addict's Treasury, compiled with Lynda Murphy, Julie Rugg returns with a second anthology of literary extracts, quotations, and bon mots concerning every aspect of bookish behavioróreading, buying, borrowing, consuming, grazing, recommending, hunting, even defacing. Here are more than 350 bibliophilic passages from diaries, memoirs, novels, plays, and letters, by writers from Samuel Pepys to Iain Sinclair, from Robert Louis Stevenson to Nick Hornby, from Laurence Sterne to Penelope Lively.

"Buried in Books would be a fruitful addition to any booklover's pile. Exploring this delightful anthology is akin to rummaging in the better sort of second-hand bookshop."óIndependent (London)
