I'd Rather Be Reading

I'd Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life, by Anne Bogel, is a small book of short essays about reading.  I normally like books about books, and books about reading, but each of these twenty-one short pieces seems designed to be just perfect reading timewise for a quick sit-down in the smallest room in one's house.  That isn't such a bad thing on its own, but the tone and style of the essays are that of a fatuous blog of a middle-aged person who rambles on while saying nothing. A complete waste of time.
