    Book Love by Debbie Tung is a 2019 Andrews McMeel Publishing publication This adorable book is about me This is me well with a few slight exceptions But, basically, if your life revolves around books If you live them, breathe them, inhale them, hug them, collect them, share them, quote from them Etc, Etc This book is for you This book isn t a story, it doesn t have a plot, per se It is basically a special gift for book lovers, a celebration and homage to books and book nerds The comic drawings are not overly dramatic, but the expressiveness is what jumps out at you The passion, the defensiveness and protectiveness towards books and our obsession with them, and the familiar frustration with people who just don t get it , resonated with me one hundred percent I laughed so hard at the dialogue because I ve said or done these things often I have had variations of these arguments and conversations and have had the exact same reactions, thoughts and feelings, at one time or another The only difference for me is that I ve been known to hug my Kindle in the same way I hug a print copy book This happens and often now that I really have come to...

    This lovely little treasure by Debbie Tung contains all those moments that make us readers such a wonderful, lively, thoughtful and sometimes excruciating for the ones around us beautifully obsessed bunch of people.For all those moments when we brought a book to the cinemaOnce I did that I knew I wasn t going to enjoy the film I don t enjoy most films but I didn t want to break the fellowship Truth is I managed to read quite a few pages under the light of the silver screen, minding my own business And then I had a vicious headache that lasted three daysFor all of us who never succeed in buying only ONE bookThere was a single time when I entered a bookshop and bought a single, lonely book Said bookshop was in a rural area and the selection was quite limited I guess it doesn t count as an achievementFor all those lovely books that are currently resting on a TBR shelf, trying to lure us On a daily basis.For the ordeal some of us have put ourselves into trying to find the perfect angle and light to take a splendid, artistic, quality photo of THAT book with THE gorgeous cover Because coffee mugs, chocolates, and feet are nope There, I ve said i...

    A wonderful homage to BOOK LOVERS everywhere What a treat this was for my bibliophile heart It s not a book in the usual sense as there is not one story arc or developed plot Rather it s a celebration of book lover scenarios There is much here to warm your heart and find relatable I found myself smiling at each illustration, thinking of the time when I had felt the same, did the same, etc Each page in this unique book has a special way of making readers feel u...

    photos are of the digital netgalley ARC an aging camera photographing an aging monitor in the hands of an aging lady all apologies for the quality of the images i fear that i am going to have my booklover card revoked for not loving this book enough i m not saying i didn t like it it s a sweet little book that is being marketed as a collection of charming comics, and that is exactly what it is page after page of booknerd bait a presumably autobiographical celebration of all the feels that come from buying books, talking about books, reading books, rereading books, etc etc.the situations it references are familiar it s the perfect gift book for a bookfriend you know superficially a well intentioned than a greeting card level gift, and actually any of these panels would sell well on a greeting card, or shirt book lovers be shopping i m coming across sniffier than i mean to this book is fine, it just feels a little too expected to me all of the obvious low hanging fruit of the booknerd tree and there s a lot that feels as though it is geared towards a younger, sweeter audience than me unless this is just reading rainbow nostalgia, i don t feel particularly targeted by this there s just a lot of whimsy it s book whimsy, which trumps most other whimsies, but it often reads like a children s picture book, which was not what i d been expecting i m just too ...

    Thank you to Andrews McMeel Publishing who provided an advance reader copy via NetGalley This is a book laid out in black and white comic book format depicting the many ways book lovers experience joy with their books It s as simple as that Each page has it s own example and message and if you re an avid reader you will relate Some of the scenarios will cause you to laugh out loud in recognition and some will make your heart swell with joy, as you recognize all the ways in which you love your books You like the feel of them, the cover art, you inhale that wonderful book smell, and when you walk into a library or book store you feel that euphoric thrill of expectation I saw myself in so many of these pages Carrying a book around with me at all times now it s thousands on a kindle , curling up with a book and a hot beverage in a comfortable chair or bed, preferring to read a book rather than converse or interact with people One concept I really identified with is the feeling of travelling in a limitless fashion all over the world through reading Also, walking into a library and thinking of the millions of stories mined within the treasured ...
