I posted my review on my blog The Itinerant Librarian.

A book with an amazing miscellany of book and author tit bits.
I use it as a part of my morning ritual while drinking coffee.
I dip into Timothy Keller's Daily Devotions in the Psalms (or Proverbs)
for the day.
Then the 'A Reader's Book of Days' for the day.
Often following an author in '1000 books to read before you die!'
by James Mustich, or some other 'Book on Books'. ( )

Some fascinating sidelights about books and authors here. The presentation is serious but not tedious. This would be a great book to read in tiny bits.
I read it all in one go, rather than spacing it day by day or even monthly. This may have distorted my impression of the content, which included far too many mentions of Dickens (and I'm a fan) and a ridiculous amount of information about Hemingway, much of it not related to books.
Still, well worth a read for any but the most casual of readers. ( )

I received this book for free from a Goodreads First Reads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. Obviously this is not a book to be run through in one sitting but rather relished a day at a time. Looking for a little inspiration, maybe a giggle, this is the book for you! ( )

I have been reading this book - one entry per day - for 2 months now and I am afraid I have to say it isn't as good as I had hoped it would be. It is rather dry - and the author discusses very few authors that I have even heard of. I will keep reading - hoping I find more things that interest me.
First, I do need to say that I have not read this entire book. It is a book that was meant to be read over many days – 365, to be exact. The author has compiled tons of information about all things literary – and put it in this book. The book is arranged chronologically, throughout the year. Each month is introduced by a few pages of general information about books for that month and then a list of recommended books is given. For each day, the author tells tidbits about books and authors – everything from births and deaths to reviews, romances, and scandals. When I got the book, I did sit down and read specific days – my birthday, anniversary, holidays, etc. Some days are more interesting that others - but that is the way it is in life. Now, the book is in a handy place, while I am waiting for the New Year, when I will start reading the book daily. I think it is going to be a great routine for next year – reading a page a day! I won an Advance Reading Copy of this book in a Firstreads giveaway through Goodreads, and as such, the book I have does not have a complete table of contents, or an index, which I think would be extremely helpful (It would be nice if I could look up information about specific books or authors. I do believe the final finished product will have both a table of contents and an index.)
