BOOK REVIEW: Ruined By Reading- A Life in Books by Lynne Sharon Schwartz

Let’s talk about reading books on books. Reading books on books is a constant reminder on why I love to read. Ruined by Reading offers a somewhat a deep insight on why we read and how what we read might shape our lives. It provides an interesting, curiosity arousing introduction to reading variety of books. Also, the title is captivating as well as ironical.

As we grow up and pretend to become more mature, our reading changes with us. The desire to read almost every book still remains but has taken a different form and shape inside me. We understand more, with age, the usefulness of reading a book.

Schwartz’s book reminded me of times when I was indulging myself into this vast world of reading. Schwartz understand and clearly observes that how obsessive are the readers. She then discusses how books have small part, which can be a tiny bit, or major rotation in the development of the reader who reads them. In her book, Lynne Schwartz clearly observes that every individual develops his or her own internal relationship with books.

I have read a few books on reading in the last year and this one certainly joins the list.

3 out of 5!

  1. This sounds fascinating and insightful!
    God I remember being young and wanting to read ALL the books, so silly, but a bibliophile was born in those days… Now I’m very picky about what I read, because my time is precious. Interesting to see her pick out this parallel, even more interesting to think that there are so many people with similar experiences.
