You know you’re a Book Nerd when…
—You have a minimum of 5 books on your night table.
—You never once thought the movie was better.
—Your favorite mug says “I’d rather be reading.”
—You use words like librocubicularist in casual conversation (though no conversation about books is ever "casual”).
—You wear a T-shirt that says—what else?—"Too many books, too little time."
Charming, affectionate, and unabashed in its celebration of book nerdiness, this little love letter is for every avid reader. Every page is packed with bright, playful, intricately detailed illustrations by Holly Maguire, and wonderful mottoes, definitions, relatable moments, and more.
What I loved: The artwork throughout is really gorgeous, and I loved the diversity of people shown. It's a really fun book to flip through and makes a great coffee table style read. The quotes were particularly aptly chosen, and I really loved their inclusion. Other text varied from funny to highly relatable. The bookmarks at the end are a nice extra touch, and the artwork is just as lovely as throughout the book.
Although some statements are repeated, the artwork is varied and unique throughout. The book is a really great pick for people who enjoy books and related art. The colors are really vibrant and the diversity of people makes this appeal broadly.
Final verdict: A charming gift book filled with lovely artwork, BOOK NERD is a delightful book for book lovers everywhere.
