    I love this book so much that I d give it ten stars out of five, if I could.This book was written just for me, I think.It s everything book ish It s good books, of course, by list It s wonderful bookstores It s great libraries It s authors and illustrators And it s all hand drawn, with lovely pictures of books and bookshops and libraries and authors.I love this book I wish I could loan you my copy, but I love it too much to share it You must get your own copy.

    Have you ever hugged a book Do you sometimes all the times feel like the odd one out for reading books I am on pg 15 and am giving it 5 stars Hands down.This book is grilled cheese and tomato soup on a cold day.It is spending Boxing Day in your pyjamas to recover from People.It is reading socks and soft, cozy blankets fresh out of the dryerI am only reading a few pages every night because it is pure happiness in book form, and I want it to last longer than an 80 s jawbreaker.
