I'm a sucker for books about books, have read many and this is my least favorite. While many of the books Ephron listed sounded interesting, the chapters are strangely organized, making the book difficult to navigate. How did 'Betty Crocker's Picture Cookbook', 'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn', and Daniel Schacter's 'The 7 sins of Memory ' land in the same category?
A minor annoyance, the edition I read was printed in purple ink, probably not the author's decision.
Much more readable/useful are Nancy Pearl's 'Book Lust' and 'More Book Lust', also 'The Book of Books'.
