Stuff I've Been Reading by Nick Hornby - the bestselling novelist's rich, witty and inspiring reading diary'Read what you enjoy, not what bores you,' Nick Hornby tells us. And in this new collection of his columns from the Believer magazine he shows us how it's done. From historical tomes to comic books, literary novels to children's stories, political thrillers to travel writing, Stuff I've Been Reading details Nick's thoughts and experiences on books by George Orwell, J.M. Barrie, Muriel Spark, Claire Tomalin, Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, Jennifer Egan, Ian McEwan, Cormac McCarthy and many, many more. This wonderfully entertaining journey in reading differs from all other reviews or critical appreciations - it takes into account the role that books actually play in our lives.This book, which is classic Hornby, confirms the novelist's status as one of the world's most exciting curators of culture. It will be loved by fans of About a Boy and High Fidelity, as well as readers of Will Self, Zadie Smith, Stewart Lee and Charlie Brooker.

Caught this last night and couldn't be happier!!! Thanks to everyone here who makes Litsy the best social platform ☺️

The support and conversations seriously push me to not just read more but I get to talk about ideas and feelings the books instill with likeminded book nerds. Thanks!!

#riotgrams I didn't think I had any #yellowcovers but happily I was very wrong about that. Given that we are now feeling the pinch of winter here, a bit of sunshine on my bookshelves is good.
