(This week, the creators of this meme are allowing every blogger
to create her own Top Ten list....)
I've never seen it listed in a literature text,
but one of my favorite genres is what I call Books-about-Books.
Here are some of my favorites:

by Michael Dirda
So Many Books, So Little Time

by Cornelia Funke
How Reading Changed My Life
by Anna Quindlen
Tomas and the Library Lady
by Pat Mora
Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress

Reading Lolita in Tehran

Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading:
Finding and Losing Myself in Books

Do you have any good recommendations for books-about-books?
What Top Ten list did you write this week?
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
