Book Club at Eidolon: A Gentle Madness.

This month we thought reading "A Gentle Madness" by Nickolas A. Basbanes would be a great follow up after last months book, "The Man Who Loved Books Too Much".  A client and friend of ours suggested we read this book over a year ago!  There's no time like the present right?

Amazon.com Description:  "When first published, A Gentle Madness astounded and delighted readers about the passion and expense a collector is willing to make in pursuit of the book. Written before the emergence of the Internet but newly updated for the 21st Century reader, A Gentle Madness captures that last moment in time when collectors pursued their passions in dusty bookshops and street stalls, high stakes auctions, and the subterfuge worthy of a true bibliomaniac. An adventure among the afflicted, A Gentle Madnessis vividly anecdotal and thoroughly researched. Nicholas Basbanes brings an investigative reporter s heart to illuminate collectors past and present in their pursuit of bibliomania. Now a timeless classic of collecting, no lover of books can miss A Gentle Madness."

We'll begin talking about the book Friday October 2 on the Google + community HERE!  Join the Book Club at Eidolon and join the discussion. 

Happy Reading!

 

 

Book Club at Eidolon: The Man Who Loved Books Too Much

Joseph and I have been wanting to start a book club for a while now, and we want you to join the discussion with us!  We started a community on Google + called Book Club at Eidolon, join HERE!  We feel the community space on Google + will enable the discussion to flow better for everyone!  The beginning of each month we'll announce the book we're reading, and then at the end of that month we'll discuss the book!

This month we thought it would be fun to read: 

If you've already read the book don't spoil it for the rest of us, but please feel free to join the book club community discussion at the end of the month!

We'd love to hear your suggestions of good books to read as well (comment suggestions below)!
