Arrivals: Recent books of interest

Here are five recent books that will be of interest to lexicologists, publishing mavens and people who simply enjoy reading and writing.

Book Was There: Reading in Electronic Times, Andrew Piper

Piper, a McGill University instructor, is the author of several books about reading and literature. In Book Was There, he examines how the nature of reading is changing as we increasingly move from book to screen. He has a point of view: that books should endure, and he offers plausible, even metaphysical, arguments to support this view.

The Art of the Epigraph: How Great Books Begin, Rosemary Ahern

Ahern has assembled more than 250 epigraphs, on the ground that those opening quotes reveal much about the author who chose them. There are two epigraphs for this clever book: from Virginia Woolf (“For books continue each other in spite of our habit of judging them separately”, the second from Michel de Montaigne (“Off I go, rummaging about in books for sayings which please me”).
