The pleasures of reading

Once again the weekend approaches and my TBR stack looms large on the side table by the bed. If you’re like me, in an act of pure and righteous denial, I will head out to the bookstore for that one book that begs to be read this weekend or that one magazine that promises a series of light, short spurts of reading. Here are three books that might tempt you out of the house and into the nearest bookstore for a cappacino, a scone, and a good read. (Click on the titles for reviews.)

The Polysyllabic Spree: A Hilarious and True Account of One Man’s Struggle With the Monthly Tide of the Books He’s Bought and the Books He’s Been Meaning to Read, by Nick Hornby, Believer Books 230 pp., $14

Nothing Remains the Same: Rereading and Remembering by Wendy Lessor, Mariner Books 256 pp., $13

Casanova Was a Book Lover: And Other Naked Truths and Provocative Curiosities about the Writing, Selling and Reading of Books by John Maxwell Hamilton, Penguin Books 351 pp., $26.95

    Just letting you know ahead of time, I intend on plagiarizing the phrase “in an act of pure and righteous denial.”
