NOV 15: PORTABLE MAGIC: A History of Books and Their Readers, by Emma Smith.
A celebration of our long relationship with books – from the eighth-century gospels buried with St. Cuthbert on the island of Lindisfarne to the viral “ten books that have stayed with you” question that Facebook tallied across the world – and how their smell, weight, cover illustrations, and provenance can influence our reading experiences. Smith is professor of Shakespeare studies at Oxford.
