Stuff I've Been Reading - Nick Hornby

Stuff I've Been Reading

By: Nick Hornby

Paperback | 24 June 2015

Sorry, we are not able to source the book you are looking for right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, however there were no matches. You can try selecting from a similar category, click on the author's name, or use the search box above to find your book.

Every month in the Believer magazine Nick Hornby notes down and writes about the Books he has Bought and the Books he has Read. Anyone with even half an interest in books will appreciate that the two columns rarely match up. Strangers press books on him, reviews suggest a new title is unmissable, one book leads to another . . .

Stuff I've Been Reading is less a collection of reviews than the diary of a life lived with books - books about the old East German secret police and the North Korean police state, books about Celine Dion and Charles Dickens, books about climate change and monogamous sex and the banking crisis, in fact all kinds of books that just happen to have taken the author's fancy.

Nick Hornby is the kind of reader we all aspire to be: enthusiastic but discerning, settled on some favourites but curious about the new, an altogether eager guide through a multitude of great books. Be warned though: read Stuff I've Been Reading and your own Books Bought column is bound to rocket.
