Title: Ex Libris, Confessions of a Common Reader
Author: Anne Fadiman
Date Finished: 15 Oct 2008
After reading this book of essays on books and reading I don't think I would classify Anne Fadiman as a common reader. In fact, I found the tone of many of the essays to be a bit arrogant and elitist. I love books and I read a lot but this book made me feel ignorant about books and reading.
There were a few essays I enjoyed but overall this book felt too academic and stuffy for me.
