The Polysyllabic Spree by Nick Hornby

The Polysyllabic Spree is a collection of Nick Hornby's columns for the magazine, The Believer. One of the obsessions of Hornby's life is books, and he fills this book with his thoughts, loves, desires, disappointments, and surprises by the books in his life. From recent releases back through classics of literature, he takes on a tour of the books that have affected his life in one way or another and his views on book reviews and literary criticism. For a lover of books, The Polysyllabic Spree is a journey through another book lover's life. Nick Hornby's books has received positive reviews with the St. Petersburg Times saying, "You can read this little book in 90 minutes, if you're in a hurry, or you can stretch it out over a few days -- like I did -- and savor it. Either way, it will give you a remarkable opportunity to spend some time in conversation with a guy who will almost certainly make you go out and buy what he reads."
