WHY WE READ On Bookworms, Libraries, and Just One More Page Before Lights Out

by | Read by Paige McKinney

Contemporary Culture • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Paige McKinney offers a lively delivery of Shannon Reed's musings on her lifelong love of books. Listeners will quickly note that what's offered is an accounting of why the author reads--for her amusement, edification, and comfort. Listeners will likely find common ground, and those who share Reed's sense of humor will be amused. Sometimes Reed's background as a humor writer feels a bit TOO pronounced; correspondingly, Mckinney's presentation can come across as a bit forced or overly tongue in cheek. Still, many lifelong bookish folk will enjoy Reed's personal anecdotes on reading habits and preferences, interwoven with lesser-known literary facts. This audiobook is likely to send listeners to their own libraries and bookshelves. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2024]
