22 Jacob's Room is Full of Books: A Year of Reading
Hill, Susan Profile Books Ltd London 2017 1781250804 / 9781781250808 First Edition Hardcover New New Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
Brand new. Hardback with dust jacket. RRP 12.99. First impression. A new copy, in excellent fine condition. When we spend so much of our time immersed in books, who's to say where reading ends and living begins? The two are impossibly and gloriously wedded, as Hill shows in Jacob's Room Is Full of Books.

From beneath a shady tree in a hot French summer, or the warmth of a kitchen during an English winter, Hill reflects on what her reading throws up, from writing and writers to politics and religion, as well as the joy of dandies or the pleasure of watching a line of geese cross a meadow. pp. 266. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. 307872
