The books we choose to love are intensely personal items.
For every person who loves a book, there will be another who can’t abide it.
How often do you see a book that you thought was brilliant with a single one star review?
Or something you thought so terrible that you could not bear to read another page, but half the reading community thinks it’s the best thing since sliced bread.
It happens all the time.
So when you meet someone, and discover that they love the same books as you…well, that’s the best kind of bookish friendship.
“There is no faster or firmer friendship than those formed between people who love the same books.”
