"A collection of humorous, loose-limbed drawings and quick one-liners cataloging different ways (body positions, locations, literary predilections) that bibliophiles engage in their favorite activity. An amusing gift for any kid who's always got her head buried in a book, it might also spark the interest of reluctant readers."-New York Times Book Review

"I know there's 101 ways to read a book, but I can tell you my three ways to read a book ... THE ROMANTIC THE IMAGINATIVE THE DIVA" --Pennie Clark Ianniciello, Pennie's Pick

"I adore this book. The perfect gift for any reader of any age. Illustrations and captions are so much fun that you'll want to figure out your reader type or create a new one. What a joy to turn each page. This is the perfect gift book for all the readers in our lives." --Becky Anderson, owner, Anderson's Books, Naperville

"Totally adorable! Charming and hilarious, the book will speak to anyone who has brought a book to the beach, the dinner table, or the bathtub. I'm almost afraid to show it to my children, because they'll want to try every pose." --Emma Straub, NY Times bestselling author & owner, Books Are Magic, Brooklyn

"Joyful! I love this book!!" --Mitchell Kaplan, owner, Books & Books Stores, Florida

"A delightfully extravagant demonstration of the persistence of reading and readers."-Kirkus Reviews

"This "carefully curated collection of observations" documented in humorously sly illustrations also reminded me of why adults and children read. For pleasure. For a vicarious experience -- to be scared without the danger, to feel loss without losing anything, to root for someone that you only know through the pages of a book. For information. And for so much more. But the one thing that comes across successfully in this book is the joy of reading and the pleasure in books."-Maria Salvadore, Reading Rockets
