Ruined by Reading

I thought the concept of this book was phenomenal but I was a little disappointed with the end result. It was a good read, albeit a little wordy, and the author conveyed her passion for the written word with much zeal and enthusiasm. It had a tendency to ramble on however and there was no clear format or organization. It was just a long essay on a lifetime of reading and how it had impacted the author. One quote that did stick with me, "Yet unlike love, reading is a pure activity. It will gain us nothing but enchantment of the heart." As a fellow bookworm I couldn't agree more.
