treasure by Debbie Tung contains all those moments that make us readers such a wonderful, lively, thoughtful and sometimes excruciating for the ones around us beautifully obsessed bunch of people.For all those moments when we brought a book to the cinemaOnce I did that I knew I wasn t going to enjoy the film I don t enjoy most films but I didn t want to break the fellowship Truth is I managed to read quite a few pages under the light of the silver screen, minding my own business And then I had a vicious headache that lasted three daysFor all of us who never succeed in buying only ONE bookThere was a single time when I entered a bookshop and bought a single, lonely book Said bookshop was in a rural area and the selection was quite limited I guess it doesn t count as an achievementFor all those lovely books that are currently resting on a TBR shelf, trying to lure us On a daily basis.For the ordeal some of us have put ourselves into trying to find the perfect angle and light to take a splendid, artistic, quality photo of THAT book with THE gorgeous cover Because coffee mugs, chocolates, and feet are nope There, I ve said it I hate them For all the times we have embarrassed ourselves, torturing our necks, trying to take a peek of the book someone s reading while commuting.For viciously hating movie and TV tie ins Okay, that s highly subjective but I admit I can t stand themFor all the Bookworm Fears when the horror is real For all the repercussions of getting obsessed with a book When we want to shout it aloud to reach every person on this planet, getting sliiightly irritated okay, A LOT irritated when someone we love doesn t like it that much.For all those difficult days when books become our sole escape from a bleak reality A shelter, a comfort, a source of warmth and security A friend that provides knowledge, confidence, determination.This is a real gem for every book loverMany thanks to Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley for

nerds The comic drawings are not overly dramatic, but the expressiveness is what jumps out at you The passion, the defensiveness and protectiveness towards books and our obsession with them, and the familiar frustration with people who just don t get it , resonated with me one hundred percent I laughed so hard at the dialogue because I ve said or done these things often I have had variations of these arguments and conversations and have had the exact same reactions, thoughts and feelings, at one time or another The only difference for me is that I ve been known to hug my Kindle in the same way I hug a print copy book This happens and often now that I really have come to depend on that large font size but, I understood the sentiment, all the same This book is short and sweet and so easy to relate to You will see yourself in this book and appreciate the nod to book lovers, and may even experience a feeling of vindication, knowing that you are in good company This book soothes my introverted soul in ways that may make my eyes leak just a little What I can say for sure, is that Debbie Tung is my kind of people I may not know her personally, but I think she may know me 5 Amazing

cover art, you inhale that wonderful book smell, and when you walk into a library or book store you feel that euphoric thrill of expectation I saw myself in so many of these pages Carrying a book around with me at all times now it s thousands on a kindle , curling up with a book and a hot beverage in a comfortable chair or bed, preferring to read a book rather than converse or interact with people One concept I really identified with is the feeling of travelling in a limitless fashion all over the world through reading Also, walking into a library and thinking of the millions of stories mined within the treasured binding of beloved books When I was reading this, I would periodically laugh out loud and nod my head It caught the attention of my husband, who never reads books He asked me what I was laughing about and I told him it was a book that only book lovers would understand As expected, he walked away in a disinterested fashion In fact, when I write my reviews for arc s he can t understand why I m doing it if I m not getting paid for it monetarily Then I tell him I AM getting paid for itin the exchange of my pleasure for just reading the book Well, he wouldn t understandbut, that s the point of this book, isn t it If you re a book lover, you will see yourself in this book, and it will make you smile I especially loved the full page drawings, and imagined

that you re reading a book review on a books site Book Love collects Tung s many strips on the subject and it s an ok read A lot of the full page cartoons read like greeting cards, which is a feature in a number of Andrews McMeel books By living a reading life I live many lives at once she says in one and Every day is a good day for books and she s sitting reading in a book shaped tent in another Woah, what deep, original thoughts And that s another thing she says the same vapid things over and over which makes for repetitive reading The black and white art s nothing special and I didn t laugh at any of the, ahem, jokes She likes to smell books, she points out when she sees a kid reading a book she read as a kid, she prioritises books over practically everything, she loves physical books as much as she enjoys reading them har har But I also can t dislike the book too much as I found myself identifying with most of the stuff she s into I tend to prefer a night in reading over going to a dinner party or socialising in general I love book shopping too, particularly for secondhand books I also wig out when I notice the title of the book in the story and I fully agree to abandoning books you re not enjoying reading there are far, far too many books out there to try to stick it out with something like Anna Karenina just cos habit I m also not a fan of publishers putting movie posters on books when they re filmed and I agree that most films do a piss poor job of adapting the source material , and used to hate when there was sticker residue left on the covers after peeling them off That was when I collected books, which is where Tung and I differ greatly She s really into the physicality of books whereas I moved past that a long time ago and prefer to read a book and then either return it to the library or donate it to charity I don t hoard the things any And I actually prefer e books as they re easier to carry around, the devices I read on are lighter than the books and there s never an issue with the lighting Anyhoo Book Love is a mildly amusing read that most anyone who reads will see something of themselves in, though there s as much nodding in agreement at some of the observations as there is nodding off at the banality of the others Sarah Andersen fans will probably love this flag 40 likesLike see review Dec 08, 2018 Carol added it Shelves graphic, non

gift, and actually any of these panels would sell well on a greeting card, or shirt book lovers be shopping i m coming across sniffier than i mean to this is exactly what it s meant to be, it just feels a little too familiar to me all of the obvious low hanging fruit of the booknerd tree a lot of it feels like i ve seen it before and i have, via sara andersen s work while some of it feels like it is geared towards a younger, sweeter audience than me it reminds me of all these cutesy little book pins they are instantly appealing and make my heart smile with recognition, but what am i supposed to do with them, really Seeing a room full of books sends chills down my spine makes my head giddy with excitement just thinking about all the possibilitiesagreed, but the impact is fleeting at best i m not sure what i was expecting when sara andersen does the same stuff and i do mean the same stuff i am tickled maybe i m just responsive to andersen s wonky messy yelly art style, or the fact bookfeels are just one of her themes, so there s variety to her books i meant to like this book than i did, and i hope i can recover my lost booknerd cred oh, and obviously i m not saying tung is in any way derivative of andersen she s a booknerd and these are booknerd universals realities although i don t have the same book huffing response as these two ladies some books smell good, sure, but

from my life in her debut Quiet Girl in a Noisy World An Introvert s Story and now she s gained access to the bookish part of me which, let s face it, is pretty much all that s left once you take away the introvert part.This is my second but not final read of this graphic novel and once again Debbie s nailed it Her illustrations perfectly capture the bliss of escaping into a book, the allure of a book sale, the horror of finishing a book and knowing you have to wait a whole year before you can dive into the sequel, and the special kind of magic you experience when your book order arrives Debbie explores the bookish nightmare of a favourite book being massacred by its film, the horror of price sticker residue and the devastation you feel when someone ruins the end of the book you re reading.Debbie talks about how we read, where we read, why we read, and I don t think I ve ever felt so understood Every turn of the page resulted in validation of my bookish experiences There was only one page I was glad I couldn t relate to when you have to choose between books because you ve reached the maximum amount you can have on loan at any one time from the library Thankfully my wonderful librarians consider the loan limit a suggestion, not a strict rule, where I m involved just one reason why my library is the best in the world I cannot get enough of this book and only wish it had been several hundred pages longer I wonder what part of my life Debbie is going to tackle next Whatever it is, I need to read it immediately Thank you so much to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel
