Bibliophile: An Illustrated Miscellany Reviews
I can no longer hog the library copy of "Bibliophile". Do yourself a favor and buy this one, too, because it is jam-packed with illustrated lists of best books by topic and other bookmania lists of bookstores, Novel food, book club suggestions, bookstore cats, Little Free Libraries , reference cookbooks...200+ pages of 2 page spreads per list. (Tip: Make "Bibliphile" a choice for your book club and explore new genres to pep up your reading year.)
Fun book; Jane Mount's illustrations are fab. It's cheerful and makes me glad to be a reader.
This delightful book is full of lovely illustrations, and would make a lovely gift for all the readers in your life, including yourself.

I was sent a copy of Bibliophile by my bookish buddy Katrina because I've been working with the publisher for my day job. This really is my sort of miscellany. Jane Mount is super talented – I have been coveting a bookstack print myself – and Bibliophile is full of literary facts, book recommendations, and bookshop spotlights, and it kept me entertained during my lunch breaks.

I love this book so much that I'd give it ten stars out of five, if I could.
This book was written just for me, I think.
It's everything book-ish. It's good books, of course, by list. It's wonderful bookstores. It's great libraries. It's authors and illustrators.
And it's all hand-drawn, with lovely pictures of books and bookshops and libraries and authors.
I love this book. I wish I could loan you my copy, but I love it too much to share it. You must get your own copy.
Such a fun read!
If you love reading, enjoy the feel of a good book in your hands, have ever lovingly caressed the cover of a favorite book, you need to get this book. Every page is a goldmine of beautiful illustrations of books, bookstores and libraries, famous authors’ writing rooms, and book recommendations. I probably added 30 books to my TBR and could have included dozens more.
I rarely buy books but I’m tempted to go buy this one tomorrow because I’ll have to return this copy to the library 😆
This is a beautiful book! I suspect it will remain on my coffee table for a very long time. It is easy to pick up and browse through anytime the mood strikes. It offered uncountable suggestions of books to add to my “Want to Read” list. Many thanks to my niece for this perfect gift.
