Ten Years in the Tub : A Decade Soaking in Great Books
by Nick Hornby




Overview -
At the end of 2003, as the first issue of The Believer was rising from the primordial ooze, Nick Hornby turned in the inaugural installment of a monthly column that immediately became a reader favorite. For the next ten years, Hornby's incandescently funny "Stuff I've Been Reading" chronicled a singular reading life -- one that is measured not just in "books bought" and "books read," as each column begins, but in the way our feelings toward Celine Dion say a lot about who we are, the way Body Shop Vanilla Shower Gel can add excitement to our days, and the way John Updike might ruin our sex lives. Hornby's column is both an impeccable, wide-ranging reading list and an indispensable reminder of why we read.
