Have you ever wished you could tell your favourite books just what they mean to you? Or wanted to give a piece of your mind to the ‘must-read’ book that you wish you hadn’t? Librarian Annie Spence has done just that, writing letters to the books under her care, from love letters to Matilda and The Goldfinch, to snarky break-up notes to Fifty Shades of Grey and The Hobbit.

Annie’s letters will make you laugh, remind you why you love your favourite books, and give you lots of new entries for your reading list. She’s also on-hand to help out with your bookish dilemmas: recommendations for lazy readers; excuses to tell your friends when you’d rather stay home reading; and how to turn your lover into a reader.

Hilarious, compassionate and smart, Dear Fahrenheit 451 is the consummate book-lover's book.

Annie Spence has spent the last decade as a librarian at public libraries in the Midwest. She lives in
Detroit with her husband and son. Dear Fahrenheit 451 is her first book.

A winsome volume'New York Times Book Review
Spence's love for an impressive variety of works is deep and true; her guilty pleasures are sweet; her frustration with and scorn for others are outright hilarious. She's that outspoken friend who knows what you'll like to read, but won't judge you if that's no more high-brow than pulp fiction.'Irish Times
A delightful read'Stylist
On the totally reasonable premise that we have relationships with books that feel like relationships with people, US librarian Spence penned this wonderfully witty and wise collection of letters to books she has cared for in the line of duty.'The Bookseller
A librarian delivers a charming epistolary volume that begs to be read with pencil in hand.'Kirkus Review
An easy gift for a bookish friend, but you’ll want to buy a second copy for yourself.'Times Union
Dear Fahrenheit 451 is hilarious, sweet, gross at times, but most of it is ‘amazeballs'.'Times-News
