RUN to the bookstore! Seriously.

If you love lingering over books and savoring sentences, you must pick up Ex Libris - Confessions of a Common Reader. As one reviewer notes, Anne Fadiman's essays are extended love letters to language. It's true ~ each one drips with adoration for the beauty of language and words. I've been enjoying this book little by little, parsing it out in small bits to make it last. And I haven't been disappointed. It's worth being a miser for this little gem.
