Great read! I did get a bit bogged down with all the different characters, otherwise, this would be a definite 5 star book! A learned a lot as I never even considered the amount of theft that happens at libraries, even to this day. When I was selling books, I would always avoid ex-library copies as they were less valuable with their markings. Never stopping to realize that they were a treasure trove of rare and very valuable manuscripts! I found it amazing that certain of the thieves would specialize in removing the library marks and that it is quite the art! Some of the book even takes place in my home town!
Definitely recommended for anyone who loves books about books! I will be on the lookout for this author's other book!
