Summary
Pierre Bayard argues that it is actually more important to know a books role in our collective library than its details. Using examples from such writers as Graham Greene, Oscar Wilde, Montaigne, and Umberto Eco, and even the movie Groundhog Day, he describes the many varieties of non-reading and the horribly sticky social situations that might confront us, and then offers his advice on what to do. This book is a love letter to books, offering a whole new perspective on how we read and absorb them
