Book Summary of Phantoms on the Bookshelves

Hard Bound

The enthralling memoir on the art of living with books "Phantoms on the Bookshelves" considers how our personal libraries reveal our true natures: far more than merely crowded shelves, they are living labyrinths of our innermost feelings. The author, a lifelong accumulator of books ancient and modern, lives in a house large enough to accommodate his many thousands of volumes, as well as overspill from the libraries of his friends. While his musings on the habits of collectors from the earliest known libraries are learned, amusing, and instructive, his advice on cataloguing may even save lives. "Phantoms on the Bookshelves" ranges from classical Greece to contemporary Iceland, from Balzac to "Moby-Dick" and Google. Rich in wit and wisdom, it will be a lasting delight for all who treasure books.
