A Gentle Madness : Bibliophiles, Bibliomanes, and the Eternal Passion for Books by Nicholas Basbanes

I have had this book much too long (it arrived in January!), but I have devoured it slowly! This arrived but remained as home reading because of its lack of portability. What a wonderful read, and I have just purchased my own copy of this super book. I especially enjoyed reading of the library of Samuel Pepys, and the historical aspect of how libraries became established.
