Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

The Book of Lost Books - sort of DNF'd.

The Book of Lost Books - Stuart Kelly

I tried, I really did.  6 weeks and 3 library renewals, but ultimately I just ended up skimming through the last half, flipping through and reading bits about certain authors.


I was hoping for something more anecdotal, but this book is much denser and much more targeted at people who take literature Seriously.  The writing is dryer than I like and almost academic.  


The book deserves a higher rating; it's obvious the author is passionate about his subject, I'm just not the proper audience for it.
