Ten Years in the Tub: A Decade Soaking in Great Books (2013)
language
English
4.04 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Flew through this more quickly than I expected, since I had already read the majority of it via Hornby's Believer series (The Polysyllabic Spree, etc.) The remaining tiny chunk wasn't as enjoyable as the other books had been, but I still appreciated the concept. Maybe the books H...

review 1: This is the third book in a series, that takes Nick Hornby's monthly columns Stuff I've Been Reading from The Believer. In this book he covers everything from April 2007 to Sept. 2008. Notable books talked about in this set include, The Nashville Chronicles: The Making of Rober...

review 1: I find it impossible to resist books or articles about the reading experiences of other people. Stuff I've Been Reading (an ugly but accurate title) gives us a further opportunity to read more of Nick Hornby's columns for the US magazine The Believer. I lapped up the first collec...
Juliet, Naked (2009)

English
3.47 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Half of an audio book's success or failure rests with the narrator(s), and these three are excellent. I particularly enjoyed the exchanges between Annie and Duncan. The dialogue crackled with humor. I wish the novel had remained with this couple, without the introduction of the w...

review 1: Nick Hornby starts every essay in this book (a collection of his work for Believer Magazine) with a list of books he's purchased and a list of books he has read in the previous month (or two). Then, the essays proceed to kind of review the books, kind of tie all the books togethe...
Shakespeare scriveva per soldi: Diario di un lettore (2008)
language
English

review 1: This is his best book title yet (and he's got some good ones). This is the last collection of his columns for 'The Believer' and it's pretty good. It's the most recent, so it actually includes more books (and movies and TV shows) that I remember. While I love his reviews, his ...

review 1: I'm sorry Hornby won't be writing any more Believer book columns. I have dearly loved the way he fits together the books he buys, and the ones he reads, with what's going on in his life each month. Plus, an introduction by Sarah Vowell. Knowing that Nick Hornby has stopped writin...

review 1: I love the format of this novel! "Every person is famous to 15 other people," Annie thinks at the end of the book, and in our contemporary, internet-centered society, this is undeniably true--and it is on that truth that the success of this novel rests. The idea of obsessive fans...

review 1: I didn't enjoy this column collection as much as Housekeeping vs The Dirt, but I do still like Nick Hornby. (He's pretty darn likable.) This collection was more serious than anything else I've read by him and I did find myself skimming in places, but he redeems himself in passa...

review 1: Everyone is Reading Bastard is a short story that Nick Hornby wrote for E-Book (you can also find it in book form in "The Best American Required Reading 2013 book). Bastard is a hilarious tale about a couple who gets a divorce and than the wife starts writing a weekly column in t...

review 1: After finishing "Stuff I've Been Reading", I was rather interested in Nick Hornby's other works. "Everyone's Reading Bastard" is a short story by him published in June 2013. Elaine is a newspaper columnist who's in the midst of divorcing her soon-to-be ex-husband Charlie. She sta...
