I've been digging into the lists and anecdotes, which are made so much more special and vibrant by the author's wonderful illustrations. The variety of lists was a fun surprise, with lots of categories that I hadn't even thought of before, and the book has already lengthened my "to read" list considerably!
I really love the book, and I'm definitely buying extras as gifts for the book lovers in my life!
