Description
A History of Reading is a wonderful celebration of the one invention that has done most for the human race. From clay tablets to CD-ROM, from book thieves to book burners, bibliophiles, book fools and saints, noted essayist Alberto Manguel follows the quirky and passionate 4000-year-old history of the written word whose true hero is the reader. For those who love reading, this, at long last, is their story.
