Overview


"How often do you begin reading a book that makes you—immediately, urgently, desperately—want to read more books?” (Booklist). Nick Hornby has managed to write just such a book in this hilarious, insightful, and infectious volume. Ten Years in the Tub chronicles Hornby's journey through a decade’s worth of books, as related in his wildly popular Believer column “Stuff I’ve Been Reading.”

Ten Years in the Tub is a one-way ticket into the mind of one of the most beloved contemporary writers on his favorite pastime, but it's also a meditation on what Celine Dion can teach us about ourselves, a warning about how John Updike can ruin our sex lives, and a recommendation for the way Body Shop Vanilla Shower Gel can add excitement to our days. This "decade-long addiction for many... makes standing in line at the bank a blessed interval for snorting another page.” (the New York Times Book Review)

The New York Times Book Review - Regina Marler
Consider it a charitable act from one reader to another, or the ravings of a book-mad woman who was once pulled over for reading while driving, but this review is a naked plea for everyone to get Ten Years in the Tub…Honest, funny, garrulous and nimble-witted, Hornby makes standing in line at the bank a blessed interval for snorting another page.
