"If Oprah would only join the ranks of Cervantes's fans, he'd have a chance at today's bestseller list." -- Brigitte Weeks, Washington Post Book World "Every Book Its Reader reminds us that books, in all their myriad forms, are necessary equipment for living." -- Los Angeles Times "These essays...occupy a corner of the grand salon of the history of ideas." -- Amanda Heller, Boston Globe "`Affection, laughter, argument'--aptly characterize the work of this great contemporary celebrant of the common, and the uncommon reader, Basbanes." -- Michael Dirda, Weekly Standard "First-rate reporting....[EBIR] allows us to step away from our myopic fixation on writers and consider the reader." -- Karen Long, Cleveland Plain Dealer "No living person has thought more about the extraordinary power of books than Nicholas Basbanes." -- Ellis Henican, Newsday "[An] admirably wide excursion into literature, history and biography." -- Kathleen Burke, Smithsonian Magazine "Nicholas Basbanes is the Pied Piper of bibliophiles." -- John Harper, Orlando Sentinel
