Nick Hornby's The Polysyllabic Spree -- Book 11

It is a collection of essays that Nick Hornby -- author of High Fidelity and About a Boy -- wrote for the Believer, a magazine.

His monthly column that stretched out just over a year and covered a year of turmoil for a famous author in what and how he decided what to read.

Each column features a list of the books he bought and the books he actually read that month. It is a fascinating trail to follow with an author that has a lot of the same tastes that I have.

I recommend reading it if you are a bibliophile, but this is a very tough book to read for the non-reading geek.
