Authors: Eugene Field 
Book Description:
Reading, reading and reading. In the 21st century, the computer is king and the cell phone is its only competitor. For those who have ever interviewed members of the new generation, the results of not reading books or anything else of a serious nature show through the blank stares of their emptiness.

This extraordinary book was published in 1896 and tells the story of a book collector, Eugene Field, who spent his entire life in the pursuit of collecting books. According to the author, collectors may be grouped in three classes: Those who collect from vanity, those who collect for the benefits of learning and those who collect out of veneration and love for books. Mr. Field no doubt never gave a thought to those of us who somehow accumulate books with no idea why or how they ever end up filling the shelves of our domiciles. He could not be expected to fathom the mind of the average ‘accumulator’ who wants to toss them in the trash but feels too guilty for unknown reasons to do so.

This marvelous book is impossible to put down for it is obviously a work of love about a passion for ideas told by one who knows how to speak to the ages.

The book comes with a money-back guarantee - anyone who doesn't wish to keep the book can return it no questions asked for a full refund.
