The Best Books About Books

List RulesFiction or non-fiction books, as long as their plot or subject focuses on the world of books and reading.

When you read books about books you know you are a hardcore bibliophile. When you read books about reading, you know you're a 100%, totally addicted bibliophile. There are books about characters who collect books, have their life changed by them, and escape from the world with them. There are books on how to read books, how to read books like a writer, books about how to steal books, and books about burning books. There’s so much to absorb in the world of books about books that authors and all book lovers have their favorites.

Like the cinephile who enjoys movies about the process of making movies, the private lives of stars, and the obstacles of filmmakers, bibliophiles are always on the hunt for good books about books. You are probably the type who doesn’t trust people who don’t read books. And your favorite characters usually have a healthy book collection. They, like you, are waiting for someone to make a cruelty-free fragrance called “The Stacks.”  

Books about books and books about reading provide time between reading a series, picking up a new book by your favorite author, and also provide you with excuses for all of that time not engaging with people or even acknowledging their presence. Books about books are about our kindred spirits. Books about reading help us maximize our potential to READ MORE BOOKS!
