A winsome volume' * New York Times Book Review *
Spence's love for an impressive variety of works is deep and true; her guilty pleasures are sweet; her frustration with and scorn for others are outright hilarious. She's that outspoken friend who knows what you'll like to read, but won't judge you if that's no more high-brow than pulp fiction.' * Irish Times *
A delightful read' * Stylist *
On the totally reasonable premise that we have relationships with books that feel like relationships with people, US librarian Spence penned this wonderfully witty and wise collection of letters to books she has cared for in the line of duty.' * The Bookseller *
A librarian delivers a charming epistolary volume that begs to be read with pencil in hand.' * Kirkus Review *
An easy gift for a bookish friend, but you'll want to buy a second copy for yourself.' * Times Union *
Dear Fahrenheit 451 is hilarious, sweet, gross at times, but most of it is 'amazeballs'.' * Times-News *
