What We See When We Read by Peter Mendelsund
A mind-bending exploration of imagination: how we see characters, landscapes, and more when reading. Illustrations and quotes light up the concepts and techniques behind the magic of reading. A perfect example of a book you have to hold in your hand, flip through, and pore over.

Why I Read by Wendy Lesser
This memoir about the interior life of the reader is great for anyone who misses English class. Part review, part lit crit, part writing instruction, such reverence and care is given to the topic it’s impossible not to be swept up in her love for great literature and how it works.
