A few of the books deal with the world of writing and books – take special note of these:

THE HOUSE OF TWENTY THOUSAND BOOKS by Sasha Abramsky


“If you finish this brilliantly realized book thinking you need to own more books, you’re to be forgiven. A wonderful celebration of the mind, history, and love.”


Memoir of Jewish intellectual life and universal history alike, told through a houseful of books, their eccentric collectors, and the rooms in which they dwelled.

PALIMPSEST by Matthew Battles


“A fascinating exploration stylishly and gracefully told.”


An illuminating look at the origins and impact of writing.
