I Will Judge You by Your Bookshelf

A look at the culture and fanaticism of book lovers, from beloved New York Times illustrator Grant Snider
 
It’s no secret, but we are judged by our bookshelves. We learn to read at an early age, and as we grow older we shed our beloved books for new ones. But some of us surround ourselves with books. We collect them, decorate with them, are inspired by them, and treat our books as sacred objects. In this lighthearted collection of one- and two-page comics, writer-artist Grant Snider explores bookishness in all its forms, and the love of writing and reading, building on the beloved literary comics featured on his website, Incidental Comics. With a striking package including a die-cut cover, I Will Judge You By Your Bookshelf is the perfect gift for bookworms of all ages.

    What a great title! I downloaded this from Hoopla and spent a couple mildly pleasurable hours with it. I have the same problem with this book as with other collections of cartoons - overload. There we...

    I thought Grant Snider's book about creativity, The Shape of Ideas, was pretty good, just okay. I do like his simple, cute art style, that I find inviting and warm. I read this book because it was one...

    Sorry, Not Sorry. I drowned myself in books today to drown out the rowdy "temporarily schooling from home" kids. And this seemed like a perfect title for a book-filled day. So, while my 2 bundles of j...
