1,000 Books to Read Be­fore You Die: A life-chang­ing list, James Mus­tich, €22.91 It’s big enough to re­place the leg of a ta­ble, but if you are re­tired, or sim­ply on a self-help mis­sion to read more, then this hard­back tome, just hot off the presses, could be­come your best friend, guid­ing you through the labyrinth of au­thors worth ex­plor­ing. Four­teen years in the mak­ing, the au­thor, James Mus­tich, is pas­sion­ate about his sub­ject mat­ter. He has been a book­seller for decades, and his writ­ing is lively, in­formed, eru­dite, yet with an undis­guised en­thu­si­asm. It not only re­veals why the par­tic­u­lar ti­tle you’re read­ing about is vi­tal, but also gives you the ur­gent feel­ing that you need to drop ev­ery­thing, right now, and read that book.
