For bibliophiles, life is full of tricky problems: wondering whether a small trunk full of reading material can be taken on board as hand luggage; how to smuggle yet another guilty stash of tomes past the nearest and dearest. But as Julie Rugg shows in this anthology, bibliophiles are by no means new. For centuries bookish types have been delving in bibliophilia. Buried in Books is a compilation of more than 350 literary extracts, quotations, and bon mots arranged in 14 chapters that cover every aspect of bookish behavior: reading, buying, borrowing, recommending, hunting, even defacing. The selections range from short, pithy quotations to more extensive extracts, and they are taken from diaries, memoirs, novels, plays, and letters by authors from Samuel Pepys to Iain Sinclair, Laurence Sterne to Lucy Mangan. If you are an obsessive reader, stroke this book lovingly, listen as you riffle through the pages, and be proud: you are in good company.

'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. Independent This is a book for people whose love of literature is much more than a nightly flick through the book closest to the bed. This fun and frothy homage will delight and enthral that member of your family who always has their head stuck in a book. Buried in Books is a wonderful way to spend a free afternoon. Suffolk If you're an obsessive reader, stroke this book lovingly, listen as you riffle through the pages and be proud that you are in good company. Yorkshire Riding A fabulous compendium of writing about literature... Anyone with half an interest in reading should invest at once. Sunday Express
