I LOVED this book! Great for anyone who enjoys reading on a regular basis. Combined personal details with history in a variety of settings. A definite read for anyone who enjoys history; bibliophiles, writers, librarians, historians...

Well-written, enjoyable for anyone who truly loves to read. Thought-provoking. Not a page-turner though!
