Sounds like an awesome book.....I like her multi approach to "paper"....the making of/discovery of and the transition from telling to reading a story. I will be checking out this book!
Thanks Jen for the info!

The reason why I may never fully embrace e-books is their lack of paper. I love the experience of reading, holding a book, and turning the pages. I could wax poetic about not just reading but, the process of reading.

So, a work about paper and it's part in the making of books sounds amazing to me. I can't wait to read this book.

Great post! I love paper too and buy pretty paper just for fun!


Interesting--I never really thought about how the story itself might have changed when it could finally be committed to paper.


This sounds amazing! I'm putting it at the top of the TBR, it matches my interests so well. And the author sounds very intriguing.

I put this one in my TBR pile after S. Krishna posted about it on her blog this week! Can't wait to read this one especially after this post!

I really enjoyed this post! All my life I've been intrigued by the art of papermaking. This book is going on my TBR list.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
