(Of course, the bookish life needs no rules.)

With gratitude for half a decade of service alongside the Commentteam, and in particular for the mentorship and friendship of Brian Dijkema and Jamie Smith, two of the most bookish men I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. May your tribes increase!
My book club just read "The Library Book" by Susan Orlean (2018). To a person the group thought the book mediocre at best but it has some redeeming qualities for the book obsessed. (I liked it a bit better than the rest of the group.) It's about the fire that destroyed the Central Public Library in Los Angeles on April 29, 1986. It also includes lots of interesting history of libraries in the US. The fire occurred on the same day as the nuclear accident at Chernobyl so it got minimal press coverage.
Great list, thanks for posting!
