CONFESSIONS OF A BOOK LOVER by E.
Walter Walters - FULL AudioBook | GreatestAudioBooks - "I am of the company of book men who read simply for the love of it," confesses E.
Walter Walters, in this gently written tome.
Walters documents his habit of "book fishing--" seeking and finding quality volumes in the discount binds at his booksellers, and as a connoisseur of wine might match varieties with courses, he matches his books with the contexts in which he reads them--in the garden, in the bedroom, with friends.
He also provides a list of his favorite authors (mostly 19th century United Kingdom) and favorite books, as well as favorite characters from the books he has read, not in a way to impose his choices on other readers, but to share his own personal experiences.
