The Man Who Loved Books Too Much

Author: Allison Hoover Bartlett
Stars: 3
Review by: Little Red Hen
Destination: California

This story would not have been possible with the Kindle. It is easy to understand  John Gilkey's obsession with owning rare books even if it meant stealing them; also understandable is Ken Saunders, a rare book dealer/detective who is determined to prevent Gilkey's damaging ways. If you love the pleasure of book books, you will be fascinated with the clever Gilkey and identify with the anger of antiquarian book dealers who see their volumes disappear.
