I am currently reading The Rabbit Back Literature Society, a Finnish novel which follows a young literature teacher as she becomes a member of the mysterious society of the book’s title. She discovers a lot of strange goings on in the town involving books and the local library, including books rewriting themselves. I have read about a third of the book so far, and it is quirky to say the least….
Reading this book has got me thinking about other books that are about books. Earlier this year, I read Mr Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore, and I have also seen the film adaptation of the wonderful Book Thief.
So what other books are there out there that are about books?
