    This is a book of magnificent brilliance I loved it But, then, I m one of those addicts who spent several decades awaiting Jim s monthly catalogue of literary gems for saleto read all the descriptions and to enjoy the books that seemed destined for me to read Well, I m 62 now and I ve got to get cracking on the 1,000 here making good use of the handy checklist in the back, which I will photocopy because I have a deep aversion to writing within books Oh and you will also have some quibblesmy only one so far is that I believe that More s Utopia deserved than just a footnote at the end of the Erasmus entry I am sure I will think of no pun intended , but that s also a great part of the fun If you love books and I certainly do I guarantee that you shall love this book and treasure it and refer to it time and again OK, so Jim convinced me to read Dostoevsky I ll start with Notes From The Underground Wow I have so much to look forward to thanks to Jim s book You will too I am adding on November 15 that I just bought two copies for birthday gifts and plan to buy a dozen as Christmas giftsthat s how much I love this book

    The Kindle edition of the book lacks the Index of the hardcover version This makes it practically useless, unless you want to scroll thru dozens or hundreds of pages to find an author I found the actual contents, the essays, etc, to be as notable as other reviewers But no Index Gimme a break The Kindle is also entirely black and white, unlike the very colorful print edition It may be awkwardly large to haul around when compared to the Kindle, but there s no joy in having the Kindle edition Get it in print form

    As if I didn t have enough trouble keeping my TBR pile under control as it is, now this book comes along and recommends even titles It s not that I haven t read any of the books the author discusses, it is the sheer number of others that he offers like a bibliophile s buffet Mustich has covered a wide range of genres, age and reading levels, time periods, and cultures Entries range from Aristotle to Vonnegut, bedtime stories such as Goodnight Moon to horror like Dracula, and adventures like Homer s Iliad or Ender s Game.The entry for a book might include a synopsis, a brief description of the authors life, the social climate at the time of publication, or other relevant facts Endnotes also point out other titles by the same author, books for further information about each subject, adaptations of the work, any awards it won, and read alikes by other authors It s like having an if you like that, then try this feature on steroids.Quotes from critics or other authors underscore the sort of reactions a book inspires in its readers, although Mustich does a wonderful job of expressing his own opinions He says this about Roald Dahl, for instance, Standing out among his storytelling treats is Matilda, whose superheroine is heroic and triumphant first and foremost because she reads Along with the written entries there are also images of authors, book covers, teaser posters for movie adaptations, historical photos, and reproductions of iconic illustrations.Booknote sidebars cover related titles, while More to Explore sections group books with similar themes even other books about books Back matter includes a general index of the books and authors mentioned, and A Miscellany of Special Lists has curated groupings of titles based on subject, style, or audience The explanation of the book s organization explains all these features as well as letting readers know that over 3,000 authors and 6,000 additional books are mentioned besides the main entries So does that make it 7,000 books to read before you die The companion website has books indexed by chronology and genre.No matter what sort of reader you are constant, binge, persnickety, omnivorous you will find useful information than you are likely to have the time to implement I suggest investing in some highlighters or sticky tabs if you purchase a print version, or be prepared to bookmark your e book edition like crazy You won t want to forget any of the entries or other details that catch your interest.Highly recommended for YA and up or as a reference for school librarians and teachers to help steer students to titles that suit their tastes.

    As has been mentioned, the Kindle edition is virtually unusable, as there is no index, outside of alphabetical chapters of author s last names, leaving the reader to scroll through 30 40 books to the object of desire A simple solution would be to put a LOCATION NUMBER FOR EACH BOOK in the list of books, so it can be searched The book itself is superb I will be ordering the hardcover version soon in addition to the kindle
