Why play to 12,000 people when you can play to 12? In Autumn 2021, Robin Ince's stadium tour with Professor Brian Cox was postponed due to the pandemic. Rather than do nothing, he decided he would instead go on a tour of over a hundred bookshops, from Wigtown to Penzance; from Swansea to Margate. Packed with anecdotes and tall tales, Bibliomaniac follows Robin up and down the country in his quest to discover just why he can never have enough books. It is the story of an addiction and a romance, and also of an occasional points failure just outside Oxenholme.… (mais)

I liked it, but it wasn't as wonderful as I'd hoped, possibly because the author's taste in books to look for while book-hunting isn't the same as mine. It was, though, fun to hear about some of the oddball books he picked up.
I liked this passage because it describes one aspect of we who prefer to read: The comedian Arthur Smith once summed up the perfect amount to earn as being enough to buy the books you wanted, have a drink in the pub and still be able to afford a taxi home.
I liked this fun passage because it reflects what I find best about bookshops, which is stumbling across books you didn't know you needed and maybe never knew existed but have to have: There is an Oxfam shop directly on my way from the station to Brendon Books. I need a book of photographs of London in the 1980s with a picture of Francis Bacon on the Tube, and I need one on psychoanalysis and art - and as luck would have it, the shop had both. ( )

I chose Bibliomaniac with some trepidation, having yet to find a book about books that doesn’t revere long dead white men and assorted tedious classics, so I was pleased to discover Ince’s taste tends to be rather more eclectic, if not eccentric.

“I pick up a book by Houdini about psychic mediums; something about the quest for the Holy Grail; a Jungian guide to grotesques in literature; and Yukio Mishima’s The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea”

Bibliomaniac is not a reading guide though, it’s a travelogue of sorts that tells of Robin Ince’s post-CoVid lockdown adventure as he travels the length and breadth of Britain to speak at 111 independent bookstores in 100 days to promote his book, The Importance of Being Interested: Adventures in Scientific Curiosity.

Each chapter, prefaced with a sketched map that roughly shows a particular leg of his journey, is essentially a collection of anecdotes and observations told with thoughtfulness, humour, and enthusiasm. Ince writes of his travel experience (he relies mostly on public transport), his impression of the stores he visits, their owners and their patrons, and of course, the books he finds and adds to his collection. Ince also muses on his relationship to books and reading, and occasionally wanders off on idiosyncratic tangents.

“I think I love books more than I love reading. Their company means there is always the possibility of something to be discovered, waiting for me between the covers, which hasn't even entered my imagination yet. A small but pleasing change in my reality is waiting on every shelf.”

A book for booklovers by a booklover, Bibliomaniac is an entertaining read. ( )

Dedicated to all the bibliomaniacs, all of those who are never happier than when in a library or a bookshop and especially to my friend Katherine, formerly KP, who has always been the most kind and curious person and has led me to many wonderful books.

And always to Nicki.

And always to Archie.
