Book Love – Debbie Tung

“Books can take you to magical places.”

How to review 130-odd pages of sweet cartoon drawings, on the subject of being a true bibliophile? Urm, it’s really good! Can I share a picture? Yes, as this is a review, that seems to be allowed (plus, you can find plenty online if you need another few panels to persuade).

cartoon strip "What're you thinking about? How life is so short and there's just not enough time. To do all the things you always wanted to do? To read all the books I always wanted to read.

Simple drawings, many truisms about being a book lover. There is nothing not to love about this book. It’s cute more than funny – although some of the bookish situations are so true to (my) life that they did make me laugh – but that’s more than fine. This is a huge warm cosy blanket of a book that says “I’m a bookdragon, too, let’s bond over our love of books.” Not crime novels or fantasy books, but the sheer pleasure of reading.
