One for the Books :

An absolute must-read for anyone who loves books

In Closing Time, Joe Queenan shared how he became a voracious reader to escape a joyless childhood. Now, like many bibliophiles, he fears for the books that once saved him. In One for the Books, Queenan examines the entire culture of reading and what books really mean in people's lives today. What does it suggest if a person has no books displayed in his living room? Can an obsession with reading prove detrimental to one's well being? How useful are covers in selling books? Queenan's many fans - as well as anyone who loves books and reading - will want to join him on his unforgettably funny and moving journey.
