Judging a Book by Its Lover: A Field Guide to the Hearts and Minds of Readers Everywhere by Lauren Leto

Rating: 3.75/5

Leto's memoir-ish reading guide is amusing, highly readable, mildly irreverent and ultimately irrelevant. Her only qualification is her avid readership, and though she has read widely, there are gaps in her library. Her stereotyping is funny, but not useful. I would not recommend using this book as an actual guide to impress people, it's more like a parody intermixed with anecdotes illustrating her sincere love of reading. I may not share many of Leto's opinions and attitudes, but I found this book very entertaining.
