Unpacking My Library: Writers and Their Books

A lovely little book by Leah Price featuring a short essay by her about bookshelves, then a look at the personal libraries of several writers including Philip Pullman, Aliston Bechdel, Stephen Pinker and Junot Diaz including plenty of photographs of their bookshelves and discussions about their bookbuying and bookstoring habits. Certainly the best book about bookshelves published in 2011 and definitely should go in the Christmas stocking of anybody you know who likes reading and books.
