"It's not that I don't like people. It's just that when I'm in the company of others - even my nearest and dearest - there always comes a moment when I'd rather be reading a book.Maureen Corrigan, Leave me alone, I'm reading (2005)

This is my favourite quote of the entire collection. And the collection does contain some great bits, with everything from Lady Montague's 18th century letters, to P.G. Wodehouse, to Roald Dahl's Matilda getting a look in. It's definitely a fun little read for the committed booklover.

Caught at the meet up. Great to see everyone after a bit of a long absence. This looks like it will be right up my street!

This collection of views on all aspects of books and reading was good fun. I really identified with Mrs Cayhill who becomes oblivious to all around her when reading. Will bring along to the next meet up.

I’ve been reading this over the past few months, having discovered it during a major clear out. Some very amusing extracts and quotes and some wise words. Very enjoyable.
“Real happiness lies in the little things, in a bit of gardening work, in the rattle of teacups in the next room, in the last chapter of a book.”

Picked up at Old Gang meetup - couldn't resist the cover... I feel seen ;-)

Of course, I do love an anthology that I can dip into alongside a more focused read. Will parallel read in 2024

Thank you
