Books About Books - Or Getting Ready to Teach
Ruined by Reading by Lynne Sharon Schwartz
This book was the first I read to prepare for my first day AP English Summer Reading presentation. Schwartz has many opinions about reading that I agree with. She describes herself as an addict and tries to explain the reasons for her addiction to reading.
So Many Books by Gabriel Zaid
This book is full of observations about the world wide literary condition. Zaid is a Spanish writer who lives in Mexico.
